Las Tintoreras, Puerto Villamil
(4.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Get in touch with the local aquaculture population with a visit to the islet of Las Tintoreras. The turquoise waters of the bay are sheltered, providing a perfect spot for sea lions, sea turtles, marine iguanas, stingrays, and reef sharks to hang around. At low tide, the bay is connected to a small shallow pool of clear water, where you can get an up-close look at the sharks. Survey the marine life from a lava deck above, or grab your snorkel and jump right in. To visit Las Tintoreras on your trip to Puerto Villamil, use our Puerto Villamil trip itinerary maker.

  • ride to the island where you can see iguanas, sharks, manta rays, penguins and sea lions. The guide was excellent and the captain is given the time to show the animals to make them you can photograph or film. They explain everything very well. then you do snorkeling and see fish, turtles and rays. everything takes about 2 to 2.5 hrs. very close to the island

  • On this tour the children could see several sharks in one channel and also many marine iguanas together. During the snorkel you hopefully can swim with sea lions, stingrays, and many turtles.
