Isla de la Plata Wildlife Safari

Blue-footed boobies hop around to impress mates. Sea lions gather in small colonies, belching and honking through the day. A humpback whales breaches, barely 50 metres away. 

Isla de la Plata is tagged as the “poor man’s Galapagos” but the wildlife safari is far from poor. There are few other places in the world you can encounter so much marine and bird life. 

On a private boat safari you will explore the key sites, hopefully encounter plenty of whales, and then cruise out to Playa Los Frailes, Ecuador’s finest beach.
