Las Tintoreras islet is located south of Puerto Villamil Bay and the journey in boat is full of rocky landscapes with seabirds, Galapagos penguins, blue footed boobies and marine iguanas. Las Tintoreras islet and its waters receive visitors that swim besides Galapagos sea lions, colorful fishes that swim over its seafloor cover by algae and sea urchins. The journey by the path lasts for about 45 minutes and there is a balcony in which one may occasionally observe Tiburones Tintoreras (Blue Sharks), that arrive to this crack of water to rest; for this reason it is not allowed to use the waters in this place. In a small beach we find Nolana plants, which are typical of the coastal zone and belongs to a class which distribution is restricted in Chile and Peru. In the mangrove zone there is an important colony of sea lions. Due to the permanent control of the introduced animals, the reproduction success of marine iguanas is higher, and this iguanas use the small beaches and parts of the path as nesting places. In the south side of the islet, the path continues bordering the jelí and white mangrove. Many cracks may be observed including a small cove frequented by several species of sea shore birds. Most of the journey is through a lava discharge where a person may observe different kinds of lichens that give a white and green colors to the rocks. These coloration is present only in the southern side of the rocks, and is believed that this is due to the winds that bring humidity from the south during the drizzle season.
