We did two tours with Rosedelco while on Isabela Island.
The couple that we travelled with researched tours in Isabella and decided Rosedelco looked the best. Also, Rosedelco was recommended by the owners of the place that we stayed while on the island. With those two references we went with Rosedelco.

The first tour that we did was hiking Sierra Negra and the Chico Volcano. We really enjoyed our day hiking. There was a total of 8 people plus our guide in our group. We saw other groups that had way more people. I counted one group of 18 from a different tour company. I preferred the smaller size of our group. The guide did an excellent job of pointing out interesting flora and fauna along the way and was very easy to understand his English. The Sierra Negra caldera was huge but the views from the Chico Volcano really stole the show. Make sure that you take weather appropriate clothing (windbreaker), plenty of water, sun screen, a great attitude, and mostly bring your camera! Rosedelco provided lunch which was a sandwich, crackers, piece of fruit, candy bar and a juice box. Rosedelco also provided transportation to and from where we stayed.
The trip takes about 6-7 hours depending upon your speed so the early start was appreciated

The second trip that we did with Rosedelco was the Los Tuneles Trip. Los Tuneles was a great day trip!
Once again Rosedelco provided transportation to and from where we stayed and lunch on the trip. Hot drinks were provided on this trip. The boat trip into the tunnels was fun and Captain Travolta was an expert at navigating the area. We had a great view from the forward part of the boat. We did a walking tour first and saw blue footed boobies, birds and several swimming turtles. Our guide provided excellent information on everything that we saw. After the walking tour we did two snorkeling swims. Both swims were enjoyable. A wetsuit was helpful. The first swim was in the tunnel area and the guide knew everywhere to go to see the sights. Seeing the underwater formations and sea life was interesting. The second snorkel was a short boat ride away. We saw turtles too many to count, Rays, Sharks, and Sea Horses. Once again the guide knew right where to go. I was surprised by how much interaction there was with the underwater formations. The snorkeling in places was very shallow and touching the bottom was unavoidable.
My only negative comment would be that we did spend about 30 extra minutes on the return boat trip while the crew went fishing. This would have been ok because we were also looking for rays and other sea life but we had one person on the trip that was getting sea sick and getting them back on land would have been better than looking for dinner.

Overall though Rosedelco did a nice job for the two days that we used them.

As a family, we had a great tour with rosedelco. The ship is fine, clean, the captain solid and the assistant cool. He is a great chef too.
We sailed from the harbour to los tuneles and walked around. Our guide creates a discount in the review. Although he helped in finding sharks, seaturtles, boobies etc, he was speedy. He started with please stay together but he lost part of the group. He did not notice one stayed behind due to his speed. That one came back later, closer to the ship when seeing seaturtles.
On board we had a good lunch, fruit, snack. We did 2 snorkle tours one to see the sealife and one for the tunnels. Finally we did a walk to see the blue footed boobies.
On our way back we spotted sea lions, huge manta rays, penguins and caught a barracuda.
So a nice trip with some improvement opportunities.

We had a great time with Rosedelco. They are located close to the docks so after visiting their shop and trying on wet suits we were on the water quite quickly. Our main guide was a wealth of information, and on our first snorkeling stop he made sure we each had an opportunity to see seahorses and sharks sleeping in caves (in addition, we saw tons of rays and sea turtles). But the real highlight was the second stop, at Los Tuneles. I noticed we were the only boat there that day. I think it was because the surf outside of Los Tuneles was quite rough and many captains may not have had the skill/patience to navigate the entrance. I am glad our boat did, since this was a highlight of our ten-day trip - not only did we do more snorkeling (including seeing a giant eagle ray) but we hiked and saw boobies with their young. The guide really excelled here too, sharing his knowledge of the flora and fauna with us, Finally, food served was simple but tasty and more than filling. A great day!

we had a fabulous experience with this company. If youre a bit flexible with dates (ie if you have a few days) then you probably dont need advance reservations

A long but rewarding day snorkelling off the coast and in Los Tuneles. Instructor was a mine of information and managed to find us the hotspots to see sharks, turtles, seahorses, fish galore and even a playful sealion. A good experience, don't forget the suncream!!
