Explore the Pristine Coast of San Cristóbal with Galapagos Sharksky

Our Coastal Tour offers a perfect blend of breathtaking landscapes, diverse wildlife, and rich cultural experiences. Whether you choose to explore by bicycle or on foot, this tour promises an immersive and exciting journey through some of the island’s most captivating sites.

La Lobería: A Haven for Sea Lions and Snorkelers

Located just 10 minutes from San Cristóbal airport, La Lobería is a beautiful coral sand beach named for the numerous sea lions that lounge on its rocks and sand. Here, you can easily distinguish male sea lions by their distinctive sagittal crests. Snorkeling in the clear waters of La Lobería offers the chance to swim alongside sea turtles, colorful fish, and playful young sea lions.

As you walk along the nature path, you’ll encounter button mangroves, white mangroves, Chala (Croton), Palo Santo trees, Galápagos cotton, and other unique coastal flora. Following the path leads you to Las Negritas, a cliffside area perfect for observing sea birds, sea turtles, and marine iguanas, often camouflaged against the volcanic rocks.

Centro de Interpretación: A Journey Through History and Ecology

The Interpretation Center (Centro de Interpretación Ambiental Gianni Arismendy) is a must-visit stop on your tour. Situated near the port, this center provides a comprehensive overview of the history and geology of the Galápagos Islands, complemented by photographs and testimonials from local residents. It’s an excellent place to gain a deeper understanding of the unique environment and cultural heritage of the archipelago.

Tijeretas and Darwin Bay: Scenic Views and Vibrant Marine Life

From the Interpretation Center, follow the path to Tijeretas, where two viewpoints offer spectacular vistas of the island. Darwin Bay is a prime spot for snorkeling, where you can swim with sea turtles, sea lions, and other fascinating marine life. The path eventually branches off, allowing you to either return to the Interpretation Center or continue towards Punta Carola.

Punta Carola: Sunset Views and Surfing Adventures

Punta Carola is home to a picturesque beach with a lighthouse, offering stunning sunset views over the horizon. This beach is ideal for beginner surfers, with its gentle waves most of the year, although the surf can pick up during certain seasons.
