About Itinerary

Yes we have the high voltage diving at Darwin and Wolf Islands on our itinery. Hammerheads, Galapagos sharks, Silky sharks and Whale sharks in season. Darwin and Wolf put Galapagos on the map for divers.
Divers can begin to take ‘another school of hammerheads’ for granted (true), so like most Galapagos liveaboards, we also dive the western sites. Punta Vicente Roca is a Mola Mola cleaning station, is rich in species and perhaps has the most coral in all Galapagos. Cabo (Spanish for Cape) Marshall is a dependable site for 20 giant Mantas. At Cabo Douglas, you dive with Marine Iguanas and Penguins while they feed. Cousins, our final dive, is in the Central Islands.
All Galapagos liveaboard itineraries are a minimum of 7 nights due to the distance of the remote sites we dive.

Facts & Questions

NITROX / ENRICHED AIR VS. AIR
  • Nitrox/Enriched Air Certification by a recognized certification/training agency is required to dive with Nitrox on board Galápagos Sky. Without proof of Nitrox certification, divers will be provided with air fills. Without Nitrox certification, all dives cannot be completed on Days 3, 4 & 5 at Wolf & Darwin due to recreational Non-Decompression Limits. Nitrox classes are not offered on board. Our membrane system generally produces 32%. Certified Nitrox divers must analyze and log Nitrox mixes and MODs prior to each dive. Nitrox Analyzers are provided on board.

    ✅ Nitrox Certification Cards must be presented to Dive Guides at check-in on board.

    ✅ Divers without Nitrox Certification will be required to hire a Private Dive Guide.
DIVE ACCIDENT INSURANCE

Each diver is required to have Dive Accident insurance. Divers must note the company and policy number on the Application. The Hyperbaric Chamber donation fee does not cover any medical expenses if needed. Traditional Health Insurance and Travel Insurance policies do not cover hyperbaric treatment or emergency evacuation caused by the activity of scuba diving. A Dive Accident policy or rider to a Travel Insurance policy is required. DAN.og and DiveAssure.com are common Dive Accident Insurance companies that also offer Travel Insurance. There are many other Dive Accident and Travel Insurance companies offered around the world. Best to research what is available in your home country.

ELECTRICITY ON GALAPAGOS SKY

110/AC 60 cycle Type B (the same as in North and Central America) with some 220 outlets on the dive deck. The main lounge area and all cabins have Type B outlets.

PRIVATE DIVE GUIDE SERVICES

For divers who wish to have a Private Dive Guide, an extra guide can be made available for $1750 per week. Private Dive Guide services must be made well in advance and are contingent to Dive Guide availability.

Divers must have a minimum of 50-100 dives and recent dive experience within 6 months of the departure date. No divers under the age 15. If a diver, agent or trip leader books an under qualified diver or a diver without Nitrox Certification, we can require a Private Dive Guide to be hired at their expense.

Divers with a Private Dive Guide dive with the main group and not separately for logistics and safety reasons. Separate drops are not permitted.

The fee is added to the reservation invoice and payment is made in advance.
