Fondeadero, Galapagos

Enjoy the thrill of night diving

Fondeadero, Galapagos
  • Fauna abundance

  • Striking vistas

  • Difficulty


This is one of the only places in the whole Galapagos where night diving is allowed. Fondeadero means "anchoring site", and it's well names - this is the perfect place for a night dive as it's protected from the winds and currents. This makes it possible to enjoy night diving, and to witness a whole new side to Galapagos' undersea world.

Highlights to a night dive here include the chance of seeing the see glow gently with an eerie light, thanks to the bioluminescence of tiny plankton in the water when conditions are right. You've also got an excellent chance of being joined by Galapagos Fur Seals on your dives here.
