Travel to Floreana on a day trip | Galapagos with ChokoTrip

4.5/5 - (23 votes)

I CAN HELP YOU BOOK the tour to Floreana for $160 . The first island I met and fell in love with its history and nature.

Once in Floreana we will head to “Asilo de la paz” in a chiva, here the attractions are based on historical concepts, in the Asilo you will be able to go to the pirates cave and also to the fresh water spring. These two sites are located in the highlands of Floreana.

Additionally you will also learn about the first families arriving and settling down in the Galapagos Islands, and the famous true story of the “Baronesa” who was a woman who had her two lovers and pretended to be the owner of the Island.




After this we will visit “La Loberia” which is a path of 900 m long. Here you will be able to see Sea Lions and marine iguanas as well. Later on we will continue to Playa Negra so you can relax and enjoy some beach time. You will also have time to do snorkel. Late in the afternoon we will return in the speed boat to Isla Santa Cruz.

    Great tour of Floreana Island. Our guide was very informative about the island and it’s history. We enjoyed the snorkeling adventure where we saw sea turtles swimming around us. We also saw many sea lions, iguanas, and tortoises. There is some interesting land formations in the highlands and some intriguing history from turn of the century inhabitants. It was a lovely day. The boat that takes you there is a speed boat, and the ride is about 2 hours. Having read this ahead of time I took Dramamine. I recommend this as seas were rough and several people were sick. Great trip and everything went as planned.

    Awesome Tour. The Tour to Floreana was my favourite. We did fantastic snorkeling where we have seen a sea lion playing with us and even a Pinguin. The trip to the Highlands was great and interesting. We didn’t expect that. We also took a postcard from the Replica of the famous Post Office Bay with us. Best trip was to Floreana, even all trips organized by choko were good and worth it.

    A really good tour! We wanted to sample another island and this tour had enough variety for us. Particularly enjoyed the walk to the pirate caves. Spectacular views. Lunch was excellent and the tour was well organised. Guide was knowledgeable and patient. And the cost was much less than if we’d gone through one of the more we’ll known agents.

    The organization for the tour was perfect. Choko made it easy and safe. Concerning the tour itself, it was nice but not the best experience we had in the Galapagos. Considering the fact that we were more about to watch birds, it was not the best place to go. Anyway, the tour guide was very good and friendly, more that I was expecting for a day tour. The historical part of the visit if quite interesting but it deals more with german history that I didn’t know.

    We were very happy with the tour of Floreana arranged via Choko Trip. While it is possible to book tours in person once you arrive, it was convenient to arrange in advance so we didn’t have to worry about shopping around once we got there, and Christian was the only operator I could find who accepted PayPal. Our guide was very knowledgable and lunch was delicious and included vegetarian-friendly options. We had a great time!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Floreana island arranged by Choko Trip. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the Giant Tortoises and the island and it’s past history. Lunch was fabulous, much more than we expected on this tour. Choko took the time to explain the tours to us and made all of the necessary arrangements. I am very thankful we made contact with Choko prior to our vacation in the Galapagos islands as he took the time to recommend which tours/islands to make our stay a memorable one. Thank you Choko Trips! We will definitely be in contact when we return again.
