Day trip to Pinzon - Galapagos tours by #ChokoTrip

Pinzon Island tour from Santa Cruz | Galapagos with ChokoTrip

I CAN HELP YOU BOOK the tour to Pinzon from $135. Swim with sea lions, sharks, sting rays and penguins.

I visited Pinz贸n Island with my family almost at the end of our vacation. We arrived at a place called Bah铆a Ping眉ino, the first point of the tour. We were lucky to see the Galapagos sharks of Punta Blanca very close to us, I can not lie, it’s scary. However, you can also swim near the Turtles and Penguins, of course without harassing or chasing them. Unfortunaly, the sea lions were not there, because when there are sharks around, they prefer to go to a safe place. (You can鈥檛 always observe penguins and shark on the island.)




Finished the visit of Pinz贸n, they direct us towards the ‘Roca sin nombre’, a huge stone of 20 meters located in the middle of the sea. In this place you can see blue footed boobies, lava gulls, sea lions and, you can also participate in a demonstration of artisanal fishing. This trip is combined with a visit to La Fe or Las Palmitas, beautiful beaches where you can snorkel with sea turtles. Depending on the patent of the boats, you can go to those places before or after going to Isla Pinz贸n.

    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!!
