The Galápagos Sky is a 100ft, purpose-built luxury dive boat. Her current owner helped to design her to his exact requirements and she was launched in 2001. Traditionally in Galápagos, those looking for luxury didn't go on a dive boat, and those looking for great diving had to avoid the luxury boats. Galápagos Sky has rewritten that rule by providing those who are looking for the ultimate diving experience with stunning accommodation and fine dining.
Built for Divers Galápagos Sky prides herself on taking you to the best dive sites the Galápagos has to offer. Her crew includes two dive guides who are expertly trained and certified by the Galápagos National Park.
Her dive platform is exceptionally well equipped, with freshwater showers and warm towels available after each dive, as well as a warming drink and tasty post-dive snacks! Rinse tanks for cameras and gear are available, and you can also rent cameras and other dive gear if you wish. Your tariff includes air or nitrox filled tanks, weights, weight belt and up to 4 dives per day (including at least one night dive).
Built for luxury Accommodation is based on 8 private twin/double cabins. Each is fitted with beautiful wood finishes and features plenty of storage for your gear - important on dive expeditions! En suite bathrooms feature luxurious biodegradable cosmetics and sumptuous bathrobes. Each cabin features individual air conditioning for your complete comfort.
Galápagos Sky's public areas are no less impressive. A wonderful salon area decorated with stunning teak deck and dark wood fittings features a comfortable communal sofa lounge and plenty of natural light. The main salon features comfortable seating for relaxing and for dining, and the sundeck is the perfect place to soak up some equatorial rays or to see the stars in the stunning Galápagos night sky. It features loungers and hammocks and both shaded and open areas, all with stunning views of the islands around you.
There is a delightful bar that is well-stocked with a range of local and premium wines, beers and spirits, and Galápagos Sky is one of the only boats in the fleet that offers you complimentary alcoholic beverages with your meals - choose form wine or beer with the captain's compliments!
Food on board is a particular highlight, especially when compared to some other dive boats. The Galápagos Sky's chef prides himself on providing you with a stunning range of local Ecuadorian and international dishes, all served in fine dining style plated at your table. Guests consistently tell us that the quality and variety of the food on Galápagos Sky is among the best they've had on any boat in this class.
Despite this high quality, the ambiance on board is distinctly relaxed and casual. Galápagos Sky is a very friendly boat, and the evenings are filled with laughter and animated conversation as guests relive the many wonderful sights they will have seen during the day's dives.
Our comments We think that Galápagos Sky is the perfect "dive of a lifetime" option. She manages to mix absolutely stunning diving and expert guidance with luxury accommodation and food that you'd expect from a first class tourist cruise boat. Because she was designed by her current owner to do these jobs and do them well, she delivers unrivaled levels of guest satisfaction. If you want to dive at least 4 times every day and see the highlights of what's in season, then spend the evening sharing your experiences in luxury you need to contact us now and book Galápagos Sky!

Food & Drinks on board the Sky
The food on our Galapágos Cruises is among the very best you will find in South America. Most of the on-board chefs are internationally trained and have prior experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and indeed around the world.
You can expect a first-class selection of food, including a good variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always include some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have specific dietary requirements then these can usually be accommodated by the chef providing you have given advance notice. Please make sure you tell us about any allergies or dietary requirements you have at the time you book with us. If you leave it until you arrive at the dockside, then it may well be impossible to accommodate your needs.
Most boats serve a range of options at meal times in a relaxed buffet-style. At the first class and luxury end of the market, some boats have more formal dining where you will be served at your seat. However the atmosphere is always relaxed on board our cruises, and never stuffy or formal.
At Galapatours we love and respect the pristine ecosystems and fascinating wildlife of the Galápagos Islands, and we insist that our cruise partners do too. To protect the archipelago all our cruise vessels must have sophisticated water filtration systems, modern efficient engines, and strict maintenance schedules to minimize pollution.
The Galápagos National Park authority also defines exact cruising routes that dictate which ships can visit highlights at specific times, as well as limiting passenger numbers. These measures ensure that animals and habitats are not disturbed by too many visitors.
But at Galapatours we like to go even further. We voluntarily offset all the CO2 emissions of every cruise we sell - at no cost to you. And you can also play your part by traveling responsibly and following our Eco Guidelines during your stay.
