Isla Santa Fe Things to Do: 9 reviews and 21 photos
This was the first snorkelling opportunity we had during the cruise with M/S Cachalote. We snorkelled for a little bit more than an hour along the shore and then out over the sandy bottom. The visibility was not the best, but not too bad either.
Being the first time I snorkelled in the Galapagos Islands it was also the first time I saw sea lions under water come up close, which is amazing to see. Then there were a lot of fish like Sergeant Major, Parrotfish, Rainbow Wrass, Giant Hawkfish, Cornetfish, Mexican Hogfish, juvenil Damsel Fish (with blue dots), an enormous school of Black Striped Salema and a school of Yellow Fined Surgeon Fish. On the sandy bottom we saw three large marine turtles and there were also a big group of Eagle Rays swimming around, there were at least eight of them.
