Kayaking in Galapagos

Kayaking with sea lions

Wherever you swim in the Galapagos you are very likely to have the pleasure of a few playful sea lions. One of the beauties in the Galapagos is that the animals are not afraid of humans because they have no reason to fear us. Therefore they will play with you while you swim or kayak around them.

The Finch Bay Hotel in the Galapagos offers a secluded beach to launch your kayaking, where you will see turtles and sea lions alongside you within minutes. We can advise on the best time of year and how to best fit this activity into your Galapagos itinerary. Most cruises also include the opportunity to go kayaking off the beach or boat.

I just loved being so close to the sea lions, it was unforgettable.
