SCUBA Diving

Dive the Galapagos Islands!

SCUBA diving in the Galapagos Islands aboard the Sky Dancer...

Inti Travel and Tours' Discover Galapagos offers a variety of opportunities for SCUBA diving in the Galapagos Islands. Underwater Galapagos can be as exciting and interesting as Galapagos ashore. The combination of ocean fishes, birds, mammals and reptiles sets Galapagos diving apart from other marine environments. Divers share the water with penguins, sea lions, marine iguanas, sea turtles, angel fish, large schools of amberjacks and many other species of fish including hammerhead sharks.  

One must be a certified and experienced diver to dive in Galapagos. It is not suitable for novice or infrequent divers due to strong currents, sea swells, surges, cool waters, upwellings, large animals, difficulty entry and exit from the dive boat. Most dives are drifts along the cliff faces of off-shore rocks and pinnacles. There is no decompression chamber in Galapagos.

Below is a list of yachts that are dedicated to SCUBA or offer SCUBA during regular itinerary cruises. All of the itineraries of the yachts offering SCUBA include some land visits.

SCUBA Hotel Silberstein
The Hotel Silberstein is located on Santa Cruz Island in the town of Puerto Ayora, five minutes walk to Charles Darwin Research Station and 50 meters to the sea.

SCUBA Galapagos Sky 
The dazzling realm beneath the sea captivates curiosity as much as the islands themselves. Discover both onboard the M/Y Galapagos Sky, 16-passenger, 100-foot first class deluxe dive live-aboard. Custom-designed in 2000, the M/Y Galapagos Sky offers the newest and best-equipped vessel for SCUBA diving in the Galapagos.

SCUBA Beluga
The Beluga is a deluxe, 110 foot, steel-hulled motor vessel built in Hamburg, Germany in 1968. It is fully air-conditioned and accommodates 16 passengers in double staterooms, each with private bathroom and shower. The well-trained and experienced crew of 7 takes very good care of their guests at all times aboard and ashore.

SCUBA Nautilus
The Nautilus is a beautiful and spacious pilot house motor sailer. Extremely comfortable and attractive, with rich teak paneling and furnishings, she offers ample room for al fresco occasions at the large cushioned cockpit. The Nautilus is the perfect choice for those interested in an active cruise with overnights in comfortable hotels in the islands.
