Kayaking & Snorkeling at Las Tintoreras
Galapagos Islands

There was no option to kayak, but the snorkeling was cool with a focus on white tipped reef sharks. The guide seemed a little less into the trip than other guides, but still had a ton of information to give.

Snorkeling over the reef sharks was so cool.
