Diving Tours in the Galapagos Islands
There are two ways to go SCUBA diving in the Galapagos:
- On a liveaboard diving cruise where you live onboard the diving boat visiting remote diving spots every day. Liveaboard boats are the only way to dive Wolf and Darwin, two of the premier dive sites in the world due to their remote location and high concentration of mega species marine life.
- Day-trip diving based out of the towns of Puerto Ayora (on Santa Cruz Island), Puerto Villamil (Isabela Island), and Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (San Cristobal Island) where you sleep in hotels at night and take day-long diving trips from town.
Both options can be combined as well, doing day dives before or after a liveaboard diving cruise. Another popular option is to take either a non-diving focused Galapagos land-based trip or Galapagos cruise, with diving day trips either before or after the tour or cruise.
