Eventually, your guide will drop anchor near the shores of Tortuga Island and gear up for either snorkeling. The nearby volcanic reef that attracts an eye-catching assortment of marine wildlife. You can expect to see angelfish, porcupine fish, morays, needlefish, and spotted eagle rays, to name just a few.
Afterward, you’ll head to the beach where your guides will prepare lunch. You can lounge on the white-sand beach with a drink and a snack of fruit. For lunch, you’ll have the choice of grilled fish or chicken, sautéed vegetables, grilled potatoes, and bread.
Once you’ve had your fill, it’s up to you what to do with the rest of your afternoon. If you want to scuba dive, you’ll arrange that with a scuba diving club on Tortuga Island.

We really enjoyed this tour. The snorkeling was A+. Saw alot of things
We really enjoyed our trip to Torguga Island with Zuma tours. The guides were really friendly and helpful, and drinks and lunch were plentiful. We saw loads of fish, and also did some kayakking on the sea. Saw the local Peccary (Filomena) wandering around on the beach before we left.
This is a must!!
