Lava Tunnels Boat Tour
Embark by boat with a local guide to one of the most astonishing snorkeling locations in the Galapagos Islands. A series of lava flows have created hundreds of arches and tunnels, both above and below the water. The striking geological formations are outdone only by the extraordinary collection of creatures that call this place home. The water is cool and still and an astonishing array of marine life is visible from above as you trek across the lava arches and bridges or from below as you snorkel in this unique habitat. The treacherous maritime entry into this maze of lava passages is not always possible, so it's best to visit between January and May.
