Pinzon island Galapagos

Pinzon Island | Day Tour From $150 | Galapagos

4.4/5 - (65 votes)

Pinzon Island is a thrilling experience, you’ll have the chance to swim with Tintonera Sharks, rays and, occasionally, penguins. I can help you reserve a Pinzon Island tour for *$150

Pinzon Island (Galapagos – Ecuador) is one of the most recent day tours I’ve been on and I happened to go with my family. We combine the tour with La Fe Beach, which you get to by swimming there and you’ll see many Galapagos marine iguanas swimming on the beach with you.

    Trip Itinerary:

    We reached the first stop, called Penguin Bay, and were lucky enough to see Galapagos and white-tipped sharks nearby. I’m not going to lie; it was pretty scary!

    Sea turtles and penguins swam close by and we observed without harassing or following them. The sea lions weren’t around due to the sharks. Penguins are only present when water temperatures drop.

    This tour combines with a visit to La Fe or Las Palmitas, beautiful beaches where you can snorkel with sea turtles. Depending on the permit your vessel has, you might visit this spot before or after visiting PinzΓ³n Island.

    After the visit to Pinzon, you’ll head to “Roca sin nombre” (a rock without a name) that measures about 20 meters that is located in the middle of the ocean. Here, you can see blue-footed boobies, lava gulls, sea lions.

    Also includes a segment of experiential fishing, which is a demonstrative form for passengers to observe the art traditional fishing with a cane rod. Some people may not enjoy watching as the fish is removed from the ocean, but the Galapagos National Park actually requires tours to demonstrate traditional fishing to visitors so that they are also aware of the relationship between humans and the Galapagos ocean. If a fish is caught that is the right size/weight and specie, it is kept for consumption, but if it does not meet these standards, it is released.

    ✈ TRAVEL SAFE THROUGH THE GALAPAGOS

    Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we realized that travel plans can change overnight and, if we experience an emergency outisde of our own country, we would expect travel assistance that actually works during a crisis. From now own, I strongly recommend having good travel and trip cancellation insurance.

      The trip was perfectly organized via ChokoTrip, everything went well.

      Regarding the tour itself, the highlight for us was the chance to play with sea lions inside the water, amazing experience!

      Besides sea lions, the guide was good and patient, he was able to find & show us all the other sea animals we expected to see

      Fantastic trip. We Saw tons of very colourful fishes, White tip sharks and turtles. We did 3 snorkeling trips during our stay in the Galapagos and this one had the clearest water and the most fish. The crew was a lot of fun and interacted with all of us. We even caught a Tuna. I would highly recommend the Pinzon island tour, definitely worth the money.

      We had a great trip to Pinzon- we stopped at La Fe where we were able to see a couple sea lions and more iguanas. Pinzon had great snorkeling where we were able to see many turtles, a few white tip sharks, and blue footed boobies! I loved the snorkeling here.

      We took a snorkeling trip to Pinzon island on yacht Angeles Thaiz, which also included bird watching at Daphne Major and a stop on a beach on the way back from Pinzon. The boat was very nice and the food was excellent, but it was probably not the right boat to go to Pinzon. That day, it took us close to 3 hours to get from Daphne Major to a beautiful bay at Pinzon, where we snorkeled and had lunch.

      Wonderful trip! To my surprise, I saw a penguin! The guide was very professional and knowledgeable. She knew lots of facts about the Galapagos. The food on the boat was delicious. I had a fantastic time! Thank you!!
