I would not recommend this it was a very expensive boat ride. With a total of 4 hours on the boat, we had limited time to see the sights. In addition, our guide was about an hour late, cutting into this time. Basically, all we saw were some Galapagos tortoises and a breeding center, white tipped sharks, black iguanas, and some sea lions hanging around the dock. Snorkeling was included but we did not participate. If you want to visit Isabela, it's probably best to make it an overnight trip. Not worth the money or the time.

Amazing tour! Saw so many beautiful animals as big turtles, flamingos, sharks and even penguins. I was pleasantly surprised. Great experience for animals and natural lovers like me!

First off, all of my travel plans booked on line were rescheduled. None of the personnel at the doc knew about Viator. Locals made phoneved calls and it took a day to get all of my plans back in order. Paid way too much. Could have saved 100 USD if I booked on the island. And the boat.....a fishing style vessel with crammed people on choppy water. People vomiting every 15 minutes r so. A full garbage can of vomit bags by the return trip. Our guide appeared drunk. Our lunch was a joke. They were late serving food, and so,e people were asked to leave for the boat before they even finished their meal.

We were disappointed with this tour since it was nothing like the description. It started with 1h delay. 2h or 50 of the tour were spent kayaking and snorkeling around Tintoreras. Snorkeling was very uneventful. The water was not clear and there was very little fish. We did see 1 turtle. Water was also cold, so I wished we rented wetsuits. After kayaking, we had lunch at a local restaurant, which was good. Then we took a bus to see flamingos about 5 of them from 50 feet away, and then went to a very long tour of turtle breeding facility also by bus. That was it. No exploring island by foot or visiting the wall of tears or Concha Perla Beach.

Morning tour guide was great, afternoon one not so. Always great to see wildlife and explore.
