Acerca de este tour

Departure at 08:30 from Santa Cruz. We will sail for about an hour to Santa Fe Island. Upon arrival, you will see from the yacht a forest of giant cacti endemic to this island, colonies of seabirds, such as pelicans, blue footed boobies and seagulls in a bay with very calm waters followed by a large number of sea lions, ideal for snorkelling. The first snorkelling will be done next to a rock barrier in Santa Fe island, during this snorkelling you will be able to watch fish, sharks, sea lions and possibly turtles.  After the  first snorkelling, we will have lunch on board and we will continue our trip to Santa Fe´s bay where the second snorkelling will take place. During this snorkelling you will have a high chance to watch the Tintoreras sharks. After the snorkelling, the journey will continue with a last stop at PLAYA ESCONDIDA, there we will   have a relaxing moment where we can disembark (depending on weather conditions) or snorkel. In between the visiting points, fishing is also performed for approximately 30 – 40 minutes if the group wishes to fish. Return to Santa Cruz at 15h00 approximately.
