What animals am I likely to see during a Galápagos diving cruise?
In a word, many! Highlights for most divers are the huge numbers of large pelagic species, particularly the schools of Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks - sometimes huge in number. Galapagos Sharks and White-tip Reef Sharks are also frequently encountered. Other species you will see a variety of Rays including the famous Manta Ray, Galapagos Sea Turtles, Galapagos Sea Lions, Galapagos Fur Seals, and schools of tuna, jack and snapper.
Dolphins and whale sharks are also regularly spotted on dives, and it's always great fun to head to the shallows and snorkel with the Galapagos Penguins and the Marine Iguanas!
