Los Tuneles, Puerto Villamil

(4.7/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Los Tuneles is known for snorkelling opportunities, packed with so much sea life it’s been compared to snorkelling in an aquarium. Take an hour-long boat ride to the site, where along the way you’ll likely see giant manta ray, sea turtles, and sea lions, as well as views of the coast. Once you reach the popular spot, use your snorkelling gear to explore a maze of lava tubes and marine life. You’ll likely be able to get up close to many animals, such as colorful angelfish, white-tipped reef sharks, and even penguins. Several tour companies offer excursions; do your research to select the right one. Plan your visit to Los Tuneles and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Puerto Villamil tour planner.

  • The tour of the tunnels is the must in your visit to Isabella, where you can see both the local fauna, such as its history and creation of the Islands. Haras snorkel with turtles, seahorses, stingrays and sharks, and spend under any of the tunnels, once on the surface you can walk above the volcanic piera and see very many-footed, very close. The excursion is all day and has cost approx 120dls, it starts early in the morning 8 am, and returns approx. 4 pm. In the same you got two including snorkeling, hiking above the tunnels and food on board. Excursion make it a day of tormena and this worsened not it at all, though navigation was a bit more complicated.

  • during the eruptions of the volcano, the lava has progressed under the ground instead of running down the slope, then arose prior to freeze or to flow into the sea. This increase in the ground created tunnels...

  • Snorkel in los tuneles is impressive, lava formations are very unique and was a memorable experience away from the sharks. It was white tip sharks, enormous sea turtles, blue footed boobies, herons, a Manta (when moving by boat) and many species of fish.
