Diving service
A maximum of four dives will be offered daily. Two dives in the morning and two in the afternoon. Under new 2013 National Parks guidelines, in addition, two night dives and two land excursions per week will also be offered.

The best diving around the Galapagos Islands is made possible through the use of dinghies (or inflatable’s). Few dives are directly from the main vessel itself. Dinghy diving is made easy for you! Once your dive is completed, you hand your weight belt to the dinghy driver, take off your BCD and climb in. On board, rental equipment is available (must be booked in advance) and 12L aluminum tanks with INT-adapters. Nitrox is available for an additional charge.

The excursions are designed for intermediate and advanced divers. Dives are conducted in small groups with a detailed briefing beforehand. The waters surrounding the Galapagos Islands are quite cool. From December to May: 21°-27°C (70°-80°F) and from June to November 15°-23°C (60°-75°F). It is advisable if you bring at least a 5mm - 7mm wetsuit (semi-dry) with hood, boots and gloves. If you have, bring a dry suit.

The following amazing dive areas will be visited (weather permitting) as part of the excursions:

Wolf and Darwin Islands: you may see hammerhead sharks, whale sharks, Galapagos sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, green and hawksbill turtles. Another attraction for sure are the fur seals, jacks, scorpionfish and dolphines. Perhaps even a whaleshark around Darwin Islands. Expect 1 to 3 knots currents!
