Dive the Galapagos with us
5 Days / 4 Nights
The Galapagos Marine Reserve, which is one of the most extensive in the world, is a sanctuary for many endangered species. Although there is less endemism underwater, the islands are home to many species of both tropical and temperate families. This makes them one of the most popular places in the world for scuba diving.

Sample Itinerary, in full
Our Dive Safaris cater to individuals passionate about diving, offering two dives each day and a terrestrial excursion upon arrival. We are willing to adjust these itineraries by including additional activities on Santa Cruz Island or yacht excursions to the stunning, deserted neighbouring islands.
Furthermore, guests may extend their stay by incorporating SCUBA diving days before or after their cruise.
Please note that novice divers are advised against diving in the Galapagos. For additional information, please contact us.
Day 1: IN SEARCH OF THE GIANT TORTOISE
Galapagos is your home! A naturalist guide who speaks English will meet you at Baltra Airport’s VIP Lounge to take you on an excursion to Santa Cruz Island.
A farm in the western hills offers a delicious lunch made from local ingredients. You can take in the natural beauty of the area, including pit craters and lava tunnels. Also, learn about Scalesia forests and Guayabillo forests. Enjoy some time with the Tortoise Reserve’s giant tortoises in their natural habitat, surrounded only by the abundance of birdlife.
Galapagos Safari Camp ends the day with a sunset cocktail followed by dinner.
Day 2,3,4: DIVING
Two daily submersions.
Day 5: RELAX AT CAMP, AND DEPARTURE
Galapagos Safari camp offers serenity and peace. Before you leave for your next destination, relax, walk or take in the sunrise from our viewing platform.
N.B. To avoid Decompression Sickness (DCS), PADI guidelines recommend waiting 12 hours after a single dive or 18 hours after multiple dives. Much will depend on the length and depth of your dive, and this time will be factored into your final itinerary. Where possible, we prefer to follow the general rule, which is to wait a full 24-hours (especially after a two tank dive and a night dive). This covers all types of dives and adds extra time as a safety precaution.
Based on your ultimate itinerary and the number of dives undertaken, please keep in mind that you may need an additional night to accommodate the 24-hour interval before embarking on your flight.
