From Puerto Ayora: Santa Fe Island Snorkeling Day Tour

From Puerto Ayora: Santa Fe Island Snorkeling Day Tour

Embark on an unforgettable boat trip to the enchanting Santa Fe Island, a heaven for snorkeling enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. After a brief 45-55 minute navigation from Puerto Ayora (it is the island that is closes to Santa Cruz), you'll be greeted by the island's stunningly beautiful landscape, with crystal-clear, turquoise waters in contrast to the nearby white sand beach and the ancient cactus on the dark lava rocks - also the perfect place to spot some blue-footed boobies, pelicans and if very lucky, maybe even the Galapagos hawk - a real photographer's paradise! This bay offers a unique and abundant marine ecosystem, and even before jumping into the water, you might spot schools of tropical fish, sea lions, sea turtles, schools of rays and sharks swimming around the boat as this is one of the places with the clearest water in all of Galapagos. At the same time, this tour is perfect for snorkel beginners, children or insecure swimmers, as the first snorkel part takes place in this proteced, shallow and very calm bay. Post-snorkeling, a freshly prepared lunch (either grilled fish/chicken or ceviche) awaits you, followed by another short navigation and a visit to the remote Hidden Beach. Here, you can unwind, swim, or join the exploration walk together with your naturalist guide to spot some of the biggest marine iguanas, different species of mangroves as well as pelicans, finches and if lucky, some sea turtles in the second bay. On the way back to Puerto Ayora (or in between, the order of the activities might change depending on the conditions), you can give it a try with some fishing, as all our boats have a special fishing license. The most common catch is the yellowfin tuna or the wahoo - if fishing takes place before lunch, you might even get fresh sashimi or the freshest ceviche you ever had! ;-) Please note that this is not a fishing trip though, the fishing activity only takes place if there is someone interested in it and it will not be more than 15-30 minutes.
