Dive the Galapagos

Diving in the Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands lie nearly 1000 kilometers east of the mainland of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean. Visited in 1835 and made famous by Charles Darwin, the archipelago consists of 19 volcanic islands, originally uninhabited by human beings. They are noted for the fearlessness of the animals that have never experienced human predation, and of course for their unique characteristics that led Darwin to develop the theory of evolution.

The Galapagos Islands boast many fine dive spots with a huge variety of species of marine life. Due to the crossing of the El Niño and Humboldt currents in the open ocean the diving can be very demanding, with some dives only reserved for experienced divers. But for the less experienced diver there are still many good options to choose!
