Experience a Diving Cruise in the Galapagos Islands

There is a small choice of boats in Galapagos that offer liveaboard dive trips. These are usually quite comfortable and have first class equipment and guides, and all will have rental equipment and experienced dive masters with years of experience. 

The diving in Galapagos is unforgettable, and these liveaboards offer the opportunity to head to the remote islands of Darwin and Wolf, where it is common to see whale sharks, hammerhead sharks, manta rays and other spectacular marine life. 

Best Diving Cruises

Note that dive boats generally do not visit traditional landing sites, and you may want to combine these cruises with a few extra days to see giant tortoises, land iguanas, etc.


Diving in Galapagos is a once-in-a-lifetime underwater adventure, continually voted one of the best dive sites in the world. 

Galapagos is the second largest marine reserve in the world and although it is located directly on the equator, it lies at the convergence of the cold water currents of the Antarctic and the warm waters of the tropics, forming a unique environment where cold and warm water species coexist. 

Diving in Galapagos can be described as spectacular, especially diving in Wolf and Darwin amidst hammerhead sharks, Galapagos, silky and blacktip sharks, giant manta rays and whale sharks.
