Galapagos Islands Snorkeling

The Galapagos Islands are considered one of the most important destinies in the world for diving and according to many people, the best of them. Most of the Islands have excellent submarine sites, so you will be able to do snorkeling almost every day.

Galapagos Islands Snorkeling

Young sea lions get close, in a playing attitude, and make all kinds of movements around you, almost touching you when they race by your side. Fish species of all kinds and colors inhabit these waters, sharing their environment with lobsters, corals, anemones, seaweed, sea stars, and thousands of invertebrates, among other animals that fill with life and color this exotic underwater world.

Penguins dive by your side, leaving a trail of bubbles, while in a different Island you may find yourself next to a Ray, which will pass next to you while moving it's wing like fins, and of course there will always be a curious sea turtle that will come near you to observe your moves, scaring off fish schools, which create a tunnel for her to pass through.

A wet suit is not really necessary from December to April, since the water in that period reaches 25°C or more.

During the rest of the year, in which the temperature is around 18°C, sometimes even less, a 6mm wetsuit definitely will be very comfortable.
