Pinzon, Daphne & Bahia Borrero Snorkel Day Tour

Snorkel and white sand beach

Pinzon Island, sometimes called Duncan Island, is surrounded by deep waters and has remained isolated from all other islands for eons. The island is dominated by rocks, low spiny vegetation, and sparse tree growth. You can see Darwin’s finches, Galapagos doves, vermilion flycatchers, Galapagos snakes, and Pinzon’s own species of lava lizard and giant tortoise. Daphne is a volcanic island just north of Santa Cruz Island. It consists of a tuff crater whose rim rises 120 m (394 ft) above the sea. Though easily accessible to most visitors to the Galapagos, the national park service has highly restricted visits to this island.
