Discover the largest Galapagos isle on this day trip to Isabela Island and explore a paradise of volcanic landscapes, mesmerising turquoise seas and incredible wildlife.
Isabela Island Tour
First thing in the morning, we'll pick you up from your hotel on Santa Cruz Island and set off to climb aboard a boat that will be waiting to take us to Isabela Island.
After a two hour cruise, we'll arrive on Isabela Island, the largest of the Galapagos archipelago and one of the most volcanically active places in the world. Its distinctive volcanic landscapes will leave you speechless: striking dark coloured rocks contrasting against the crystalline turquoise waters lapping its beaches.
We'll visit the wetlands in the south of Isabela Island, home to around 170 different species of wildlife including flamingos, sea turtles and iguanas. Accompanied by an expert guide, you'll learn the importance of this unique place for the biodiversity of the Galapagos.
Continuing on our guided tour of the island, we'll visit a conservation centre for Galapagos turtles, where you'll hear all about how these animals are bred and live here. The turtles are a symbol of the archipelago and Isabela Island is the only one with five different species of the animal.
We'll then stop for lunch and to renew our strength ready for the next part of our tour: heading to the beach at Concha Perla Bay. We'll make the most of this paradise location to snorkel and swim in the spectacular turquoise waters.
At the end of the day, we'll return to Puerto Ayora pier to get the boat back to Santa Cruz Island.
