Concha de Perla, Puerto Villamil

4.4
#1 of 6 in Wildlife in Puerto Villamil
Get up close and personal with marine life when you snorkel at Concha de Perla. Cross over a wooden bridge through a mangrove forest, keeping an eye open for iguanas and other land animals as you approach the lagoon. A large rock formation in front of the lagoon keeps the waters here especially calm, making this area great for children and those new to snorkeling. The clear water makes it easy to see the marine life such as sea lions, sharks, many types of fish, turtles, and more.

  • We went a few times and if you dont want to find people standing in the corals and treating it like a swimming pool, you need to go early. The time we best enjoy we went at 7am. The tide was low and t...  more »
  • Beautiful place to see some cool marine life. Ask about low and high tide before you go because it can affect the visibility. But you will see some neat things regardless of the tides!  more »
  • It's a little hidden. I wouldn't have found it if not for a local showing me the night before. The water was so calm and clear the next day I went and it was packed with swimmers, mainly kids. I don't...  more »

  • Nice place to hang out and it is free. Can see the sea lions at your feet and can snorkel there by yourself.
  • A great Island to visit, be prepare and bring cash. NO ATM nearby.
  • After you walk down the dock through the mangroves, you are offered up beautiful views of the lagoon area then out into the Ocean. Seals lounging all around, like h ousr pets. The visibility was really poor for me today, though there was some fish and other sea life to enjoy.
  • Great lagoon to snorkel for free just off the harbor. It is connected directly to the harbor so what you see in there is always changing. No guarantees what you will see at any given time. The four times we have been there the water has been crystal clear and is not very deep. We have seen a Penguin, iguanas, seal lions, rays, and assortment of fish. The walkway to the lagoon is beautiful and well maintained. There is a well maintained deck with two sets of stairs into the water. Each time we have gone down there we have step around or over iguanas and couple of times sea lions on the path and on the deck. There are benches and places to hang your stuff. The view from the deck is great even if you don't snorkel.
  • One of them best places to snorkel in Galapagos, great for children
