Prior or after the island excursions there is often an opportunity to snorkel to explorer the amazing underwater world of the archipelago. It is not unusual to share the marine environment with sea lions, rays, turtles, sharks, flightless cormorants, penguins, marine iguanas, a multitude of fish and of course the ever playful sea lions and fur seals. Enjoy two types of snorkeling: From the beach for the beginners or from the dinghy for the more experienced guests. The use of the equipment plus the wetsuit is complimentary on-board. Your guides will always stay with you in the water and the dinghy driver keeps the group together, safety is given at all times.
For those who don't want to snorkel, kayaking is an excellent opportunity to explore the wildlife close up along the cliffs and in the water. Due to the clear waters in the archipelago guest will be able to observe sea turtles, sea lions, rays and even dolphins from the safe base of their double kayak. Your guide and a dinghy are always nearby. No prior experience is required.
Although sightings are not guaranteed, with a keen eye and some luck you may see some whales during your cruise, especially between June and September. An announcement will always be made of a whale is spotted.
