Galapagos Liveaboards & Galapagos Scuba Diving Tours
Galapagos Liveaboard Scuba Diving Trips to the Galapagos Islands
Situated west of Ecuador, in the eastern Pacific Ocean, the Galapagos Islands are a small archipelago of volcanic islands that make up a National Park and Marine Sanctuary. Covering approximately 19,500 square miles of ocean, The Galapagos archipelago consists of 13 main islands and 6 smaller isles. Rich in marine life in all shapes in sizes, one peak below the surface and it is no wonder this destination beacons SCUBA divers and keeps them coming back for more!
Home to an overwhelming amount of marine life, not found anywhere else in the world, SCUBA diving in the Galapagos Islands is truly a special and unique opportunity that is best experienced from a liveaboard. Not all sites are accessible from land, therefore, a Galapagos liveaboard allows you to experience numerous islands and dive sites in a more intimate and private setting.
Depending on the season, whale sharks and manta rays are plentiful, and even when they’re not, hundreds of hammerheads and other sharks will often swim right past you. Adrenaline pumping dives feature swift current in cooler waters but divers are rewarded with rare encounters with marine iquanas, mola mola, red-lipped batfish,sea lions and penguins (just to list a few). Underwater volcanoes, and whimsical geological formations also highlight why the Galapagos Islands are a particularly excellent diving location to take the plunge.
A Galapagos liveaboard allows you to truly immerse yourself in the beauty of the Galapagos Islands but there is more to explore in and around Ecuador. SCUBA dive packages to the Galapagos Islands can be customized to include land based excursions and day trips.
