Private Tour: Kayak Itabaca Channel & Tortois Natural Reserve, Galapagos

We start with a visit to the Itabaca Channel where we can explore its turquoise waters. We will have a chance to kayak, snorkel and stand up paddleboard (SUP), as well seeing some of the famous Galapagos wildlife such as Blue Footed Boobies, sea lions, Brown Pelicans, a variety of herons and White Tipped Reef Sharks.

There’s no better introduction to the Galapagos than to get onto the water as soon as possible! We will glide through beautiful red mangrove forests and along lava rock cliffs on water so clear we can see the marine life in the shallows. Our ocean (sit on top) kayaks come in doubles or singles, and life jackets are provided. A support boat will escorts us throughout our water activities to ensure safety and to provide water, snacks and towels between activities.

Transportation: boat, swimming, kayak or stand up paddleboard.

From the Itabaca Channel we head up to the Santa Cruz highlands where our exclusive giant tortoise reserve is located. Lunch included.
