What can I expect from a diving cruise in Galapagos?
A wonderful time! Having said that, it's not for beginners due to the somewhat challenging conditions that you can encounter diving in Galapagos because of currents, swell, temperatures and the rugged underwater terrain. Most Galapagos 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 Galapagos 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 Galapagos 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 Galapagos diving boats and liveaboards offer you comfortable surroundings with all the additional equipment you need to enjoy your once-in-a-lifetime diving adventure.
