Our Galapagos diving yachts, offer you an amazing land and underwater experience. All these cruises visit the Islands all year around and with a regular itinerary. Most of these boats visit the northern islands of Wolf & Darwin where diving is simply the best. Marine life starts with curious playful sea lions, sea turtles, several species of sharks, including the whale shark, moray eels, sting rays, manta rays and more.
All our vessels are spacious, have large inner and outer areas, good size cabins and the most important, they are especially equipped and are self-sufficient for long diving trips around the Galapagos. They will carry on board air compressors, enough tanks for all our guests, weights, zodiacs, and all you will need to make you fully enjoyed diving during your stayed on the Islands.
We are concerned about your safety too, for that reason our Dive Guides and Dive Masters are the top of the Galapagos, and lots of them are recognized internationally as excellent divers and instructors.
