Our curated selection of the best scuba diving cruises in Galápagos

Tipp: How to pick the best Galapagos Diving Cruise

Below you'll find all diving cruises in Galapagos. When looking at your options, try to find a route that offers a good balance of diving spots. While Darwin and Wolf are considered some of the best spots in the world, we would recommend picking a route that also goes elsewhere, for example to Fernandina or Isabela. A superb spot to look out for is "Vicente Roca Point", where you can see the incredible Mola-Mola.

It's also important to consider the seasonality of the animals you want to see. For example, if you want to see whale sharks, you should plan your trip between June and November. Contact us to plan your perfect Galapagos diving adventure. We're divers, too, and would love to help!

What species can I expect to see on a Galapagos diving cruise?

The Galápagos is renowned as a year-round diving paradise. Sitting on the convergence of warm and cold water currents the archipelago is teeming with marine life, making a Galápagos diving cruise a "bucket list" adventure for divers from around the world! Our handpicked diving cruise itineraries all give you the best chance to swim with a great range of species, including some that can only be found in Galápagos and nowhere else. You can enjoy encounters with Galápagos sea lions, marine iguanas, many species of ray, hammerhead sharks by the thousand, turtles, Galápagos penguins, and a huge range of pelagic fish. Choosing a Galapatours liveaboard diving cruise to the Galápagos will ensure you have a first-class experience both under the water and on board.

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.
