THE GALAPAGOS DIVING ENVIRONMENT: drift diving, advanced divers, out of the ordinary...

Experienced divers often consider this legendary dive destination in Ecuador to represent something of a pinnacle in their diving careers. In that regard, many agree that the Galapagos Islands have quite simply the best life-board diving trips in the world, plus incredible non-dive wildlife adventure cruises.

Such is the variety of creatures, that it is difficult to avoid lists when it comes to diving in Galapagos. Imagining a vacation with sea lions, penguins, seals, eagle rays, marine iguanas, hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, sea turtles, golden rays, and whale sharks is a phenomenal experience. These encounters, which are both educational and exciting, highlight the appeal of the archipelago.

Scuba Diving in the Galapagos Islands with Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks
While many places have superior reefs, sea conditions and ease of access, there is no other chain of islands here, the area is in a huge protected marine reserve and practically free of commercial fishing, and the waters, especially in the islands of Darwin and Wolf. - are densely populated by a vast and disparate variety of sea creatures. Since the Galapagos are oceanic volcanic islands, disconnected from the mainland, the upwelling currents of the deep sea make the waters rich in nutrients and therefore thriving with life.

Learning about evolution by natural selection in a place where the evidence is so compelling and where historically, the Galapagos Islands played such an important role in developing Darwin's revolutionary thinking is truly a unique vacation experience. Doing so in this remote part of Ecuador, where every dive promises extraordinary sightings, is nothing less than a "once in a lifetime must" experience for any semi serious diver.

Wolf Island will be one of the mainstays of your journey aboard a life cruise and promises a host of breathtaking action, including incredible encounters with eagle rays, many sharks and unforgettable moments with dolphins. Darwin Island is the northernmost land mass in the archipelago and will offer some of the most memorable dives in your Ecuador travel package. Hundreds of hammerhead and Galapagos sharks can pass your nose and you can expect incredible whale shark encounters in season. Wolf and Darwin are the 2 essential stops on any dive cruise here.

Punta Vincente Roca is a cold water place that is like visiting a different country. With mola mola, red-lipped batfish, seahorses, and horn sharks, there are many dive highlights, plus the shoreline is teeming with penguins, sea lions, marine iguanas, and a variety of interesting birds.
