Private guided tour

A trip to Santa Fe Island is one of the more popular private charter tours that we offer. The private tour follows a similar itinerary as the scheduled Santa Fe day tour but allows time for some artisanal fishing and more snorkeling. Private charters to Santa Fe do not disembark on Santa Fe Island but you do have the opportunity to go ashore at a secluded beach called Playa Escondida. If you have a larger group or are looking for more flexibility with your activities, a private Santa Fe tour could be ideal.
