Galapagos Diving Cruises

Our curated selection of of the best scuba diving cruises and liveaboards in Galápagos

What can I expect from a diving cruise in Galápagos?

A wonderful time! Having said that, it's not for beginners due to the somewhat challenging conditions that you can encounter diving in Galápagos because of currents, swell, temperatures and the rugged underwater terrain. Most Galápagos scuba diving cruises will expect you to have completed at least 30 logged dives and have gained your Advanced Open Water qualification, with experience of diving in swell and currents. If you meet those basic criteria then you are going to experience some of the best diving the world has to offer! All diving in Galápagos is from the cruise boat's dive platform or inflatable tender (known locally as a panga). Getting in and out of the panga's can be tricky, so we can't recommend the Galápagos for divers with mobility restrictions. Once you are under the water you will be in a diver's paradise, and led by some of the best and most experienced dive guides to be found anywhere. Out of the water we have made sure that all our Galápagos diving boats and liveaboards offer you comfortable surroundings with all the additional equipment you need to enjoy your once-in-a-lifetime diving adventure.

What our customers say about their adventure

What an unforgettable trip!
Our guide, Raúl, was extremely knowledgeable about all the birds, animals and history of the islands. Although I did not participate in snorkeling, others did and got a lot of great underwater pictures. I saw the giant tortoise, blue footed and red footed boobies, volcanic formations and other animals only found on the islands. My 7 days - 6 nights was just a perfect amount of time.
Galapatours picked the perfect route for us
The best vacation I've ever had. Everything was so well coordinated and the crew members did an amazing job. My partner and I had the most wonderful first vacation experience together. Luis, our host on the boat, was extremely energetic and very entertaining. The tour guides, Victor and Enrique, were also fabulous. It was amazing how much experience they had on the history and science behind Galapagos.
Galapagos was amazing!
We had a lot of fun on the Nemo III! The group and the pace of the trip were perfect for our young family. The crew was great and helped keep the trip interesting and exciting for our kids. Our guide kept the hikes engaging for our entire family and make the trip a truly memorable event for everyone.
