Day trip to Santa Fe - Galapagos tours by #ChokoTrip

Santa Fe Island day trip from Santa Cruz (Galapagos)

Snorkeling with turtles, sharks and if you are lucky the sea lions swim with you. I can help you book the tour to Santa Fe for $124.8

Santa Fe Island Tour is one of my favorite daily tours. Is perfect for swimming with sea lions, hiking, viewing baby Galapagos sharks and marine iguanas colonies. This tour doesn’t disembark on Santa Fe island.

The best comes when you snorkel in and out of the bay, with a bit of luck you can swim with sea lions. Sea lions are usually harmless; they swim close to you and are very playful. There will always be an alpha sea lion close by so you must be aware of him and not get too close. Because it is a central island in the archipelago, you will see tropical fishes, rays, blue sharks, sea turtles, it is a wonderful experience. Part of the itinerary of this tour is the Hidden Beach on Santa Cruz Island, which is surrounded by a volcanic arm, ideal for swimming, hiking, observation of baby Galapagos sharks and colonies of marine iguanas.

Before returning to Santa Cruz, a lunch is served inside the yacht and the final part of the tour is sport fishing, get ready to see a 30 pound fish fighting with the rod!

    All six of us enjoyed the snorkeling trip to Santa Fe on yacht. The tour included deep water snorkeling in a scenic bay and fishing. The trip was very well organized, the boat was fast, food was great, and snorkeling was excellent. First spot with the sea lions had pretty strong currents for our group, and the guide decided to move us to a safer area. On the way back we caught 2 pretty big fish. Just make sure you understand that landing on the island and hiking are not part of this trip.
