Don't miss the opportunity to swim with the Galapagos penguins on the Bartolomé Island. Almost every tour to the Galapagos Islands includes the possibility to see the second smallest and the only penguin living on the north to the equator in the wild—the Galapagos Penguin.

There are generally two types of boat trip to see them: with and without snorkelling. Penguins like cold water and will voluntarily swim with you, especially if you have some snacks for them.
