Visit The Lovely Tintoreras Islet

For this morning, you will take the public speedboat to Isabela, the largest island of Galapagos and the wildest of the three biggest ones. At your arrival in Isabela, you will need to take another taxi-boat to disembark on the island. 



You can also head to the Concha y Perla lagoon, where you could swim if lucky with sea lions, colorful varieties of fish, sea turtles and penguins. In the afternoon, you will visit the Tintoreras Islet. The name of the islet derives from the sharks that live in the waters surrounding the islet that have white-tipped fins, which are known as “Tintoreras”.



The islet is one of the most fascinating places on Isabela Island and in fact all of the Galapagos. In this area,  you can see sea lions, marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, Sally light-foot crabs, sea turtles, pelicans, and Galapagos penguins. An awe-inspiring view!
