Galapagos 2022

The Galápagos Islands of the Republic of Ecuador, are an archipelago of volcanic islands distributed on either side of the equator in the Pacific Ocean.

Located 906 km (563 mi) west of continental Ecuador, the islands are known for their large number of endemic species studied by Charles Darwin during the second voyage of HMS Beagle.

The Galápagos Islands and their surrounding waters form the Galápagos Province of Ecuador, the Galápagos National Park, and the Galápagos Marine Reserve.

97 % of the Galapagos is a national park

On a personal note, it is on of our favorite dive boats...

With a top team both,the onboard crew as well as the dive team it is one of the best in the region,and this we can say with confidence from our past experiences.

Marine biologist dive guides will take you in search of the best of marine life.

Up to four dives a day at the remote islands of Wolf & Darwin.

We will be there during the Garua (Whale Shark) Season, which is from June to November.

Which means a higher chance of spotting these beauties that grow up to 35 feet in length.
