Great Day Trip in the Galapagos
Roam03461697259

This was a perfect way to end our visit to the Galapagos via Sante Fe tours. The tour was a relaxing boat ride (not a speedboat) to Bartolome Island...complete with a good breakfast and lunch. Then about an hour on the island, then about another hour snorkeling. Even though it was a bit pricier than other day tours I'd totally recommend it.

Dont' Miss this View

The view at Bartolome is amazing. Our guide was also dedicated to getting us some penguin sightings, and we saw at least 7! The whole crew was amazing. Also, the lunch was like a 3 course meal - some type of fried fish with an appetizer and fruit dessert. I was expecting a granola bar, so the fact that we had a chef on board was way more than expected.The only negative was the boat ride back. This is something everyone needs to reflect on when deciding if this trip is for you. With the speed you travel back, you honestly feel like you're going to tip over. Looking back, we were probably perfectly safe, but just be aware, if you are deathly afraid of the ocean, you may have to skip Bartolome.The boat ride back aside - this trip, the view, the food, the penguins, seeing a sea turtle, snorkeling with amazing fish - it can't be beat. Bring some Dramamine for the boat ride, but don't skip this trip. Also, don't skip the snorkeling...I'm not a water fan, but the stuff you see in the water was really cool. If you don't feel comfortable swimming, just ask for a life jacket.
