Here is your opportunity to scuba dive the Galapagos. Get up close and personal with Whale sharks, schooling hammerheads, eagle rays, dolphins, tuna and much more.
***PEAK WHALE SHARK SEASON*** Galapagos is HOT HOT HOT!
We have chartered the Humboldt Explorer Liveaboard for 7nts. This boat is the ONLY boat that offers 4 full days diving at Wolf & Darwin, the primo places to see whale sharks!! Not to be outdone are the thousands of schooling hammerheads, Battalions of Eagle Rays, hundreds of schooling yellow fin tuna, super pods of bottle nose dolphins, huge amounts of fish and marine life abound in these waters!!!
Book now, don't be disappointed, all boats sell out 2yrs in advance for the PEAK Whaleshark season! I also highly recommend an extra week visiting the islands for the amazing land walks to see the rare and 'unafraid of humans' flora and fauna of these amazing islands! Walk in the footsteps of Charles Darwin!
This is your chance to dive with whale sharks and hammerhead sharks and see all that the Galapagos has to offer. Scuba dive the Galapagos today.
Please note: the below day to day itinerary which offers 4 full days at spectacular Wolf & Darwin, where ALL the big action is! (no other boat is there for 4 full days). The best time just after the full moon for all the WHALESHARKS will be on this departure! Thousands of hammerheads, spotted Eagle rays, Galapagos Sharks (Sherman tanks), black tip sharks, dolphins and loads of schools of fish of many species, including Tuna and jacks zooming around!
