Activities for the Entire Family to Enjoy

  • Activities

    An excellent way to explore and discover the beauty of the Galapagos Islands is through the variety of activities approved by the Galapagos National Park. There are plenty of options for the entire family to enjoy, and Yacht La Pinta offers just about all of them: snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding, hiking, glass-bottom boat and panga rides.

  • Snorkeling

    Oh, the great many creatures and sites you’ll see and enjoy while snorkeling as part of your expedition aboard Yacht La Pinta! Dazzling arrays of fish, sea lions, sharks, sea turtles, and marine iguanas await just beneath the surface! What you’ll see underwater will fill you with awe. You’ll understand just why the Galapagos Islands and Marine Reserve are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

  • Kayaking

    There is so much life and activity just waiting for you on the surface, and the best way to observe these incredible moments involves taking to the crystal blue waters in a super fun kayak. As you paddle beside some remarkable scenery, you’ll never get bored watching any number of sea birds diving for their meals, just as gentle sea turtles suddenly appear beside you. You’ll find yourself in the heart of so much beauty to admire.

  • Paddleboarding

    Find your center, both physically, and metaphorically as you glide along the clear, pristine waters of the Galapagos and glimpse down through the surface to view all of the marvelous activity beneath you. Frolicking sea lions, stunning schools of fish, and all sorts of rays are just a few of the things that await you on this adventure. Some folks call it a true balancing act. We call it “paddleboarding”.

  • Glass-bottom Boat

    Whether you just want to stay dry or you just want to experience something truly unique, our glass-bottom boat is the experience for you. Hover along, lean forward, and look down. This is your true front-row seat to the visual symphony that lives just beneath the ocean’s surface. The movement of fish, sea lions, sea turtles, rays, sharks, and marine iguanas is a thing of beauty. Also, shielding yourself from the bright hot sun, under this boat’s canopy, makes for a pretty “cool” experience.

  • Island Exploration

    The low ratio of guests per Galapagos Naturalist Guide is just one of many great features on offer when you travel aboard Yacht La Pinta. Each day, you and a small group of your fellow explorers will embark on a number of informative tours, as your Naturalist Guide shows you around these incredible sites, pointing out all of the different species on view and providing interesting facts about the archipelago’s native, and often endemic, creatures.

  • Coastal Exploration

    One of the most curious and fascinating aspects of the Galapagos is the topography. Often times, it is best seen and admired from the water. Your Naturalist Guide will point out all of the remarkable and picturesque features of the archipelago as you enjoy this thrilling panga-ride. And, to feel the cool sea breeze combine with the warm rays of the sun makes this a really enjoyable adventure.

Don't miss out on these iconic species in the Galapagos!

Galapagos Islands sea lion

The endemic and native species that inhabit the Galapagos Islands are some of the most astonishing beings on the planet. When traveling to the archipelago, explorers have often remarked about how it feels like they’re visiting another world.

Giant tortoise

In the Galapagos Islands, the wildlife is often fearless around humans. The absence of major predators along with the very important rules established by the Galapagos National Park combine to create a setting in which human beings can admire these fascinating beings from a respected, yet intimate distance of almost 7 ft (2 m).

Galapagos flamingos

With so many years of experience in the archipelago, our team of Naturalist Guides and Expedition Leaders have gathered their insights and knowledge in order to provide guests with a list of the most iconic and not-to-miss species that live in the Galapagos Islands.

Blue-footed boobies

Our commitment to our guests is to provide as many opportunities as possible to view the best variety of species that inhabit the “Enchanted Isles”. We call them the BIG15 Group of Iconic Species in the Galapagos.
