Galapagos Island snorkelling


Snorkeling in the Galapagos islands is an amazing adventure activity. Every site provide a stunning display, different on every occasion but always including thousands and thousands of fish, many of the most exotic shape and colour:

Galapagos snorkellers

Bumphead Damselfish, Blue Chin Parrotfish, Moorish Idols, Yellow-bellied Triggerfish, Hieroglyphic Hawkfish. Some of them sulk alone between rocks, others dart about in pairs, or gather together into enormous, glinting shoals.

This myriad of fish would be enough to keep any swimmer entranced for hours, but it is the larger fish and mammals of the ocean that make the snorkeling so compelling.

Devil's Crown is a sunken volcanic crater that is now used for a shallow snorkeling area.

The hot season for snorkelling is the ultimate season for snorkeling in the Galapagos Islands (from December to May).

Of course, throughout the year you can do so, but it is now when the best conditions come together: balmy water temperatures, and high visibility.

Snorkeling has become the greatest way to enjoy and understand the beauty of the Galapagos marine world.
