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.

  • This tour is the best thing you can do in Isabela and dare I say in Galapagos. Swimming with sharks blankets seahorse sea thousands of fish is definitely a unique experience! The tour is expensive but worth the penalty, it would repeat many times more

  • Extremely nice place to visit! The lava tunnels are amazing, and it is also a very nice place to go snorkeling. We had the chance to see sea turtles and resting sharks.  more »
  • If you are in Puerto Villamil on Isabela (or somewhere else, I just do not know if it is possible) sure do a small tour with here. Beautiful lava formations, blue footed Börje, manta ray's on the road, other species of birds, and while snorkeling many turtles, fish, sharks and a sea horse. Do so!
