This diving cruise on board the Danubio Azul will take you to the most remote islands of the Galápagos Archipelago, Darwin and Wolf, where you will explore what are arguably some of the world's best diving spots. Depending on the season and your luck, you can expect to see whale sharks, schools with hundreds of hammerhead sharks, sea lions, penguins, mantas, eagle rays, Galápagos sharks, sea turtles, hammerhead sharks, mola mola, iguanas, golden rays, seals and with a bit of luck even whales and dolphins!

Important: Please be aware that this is a cruise for advanced divers. Both Darwin and Wolf, but also other spots on this route, require experience with strong currents and a minimum of 50 logged open-water dives. If you feel like this might be a challenge for you, you can book an additional diving guide to accompany you. Nitrox is available upon request and much recommended. Please inquire with us for more details about this once-in-a-lifetime adventure. We're divers, too.

Your ship: Danubio Azul

The Danubio Azul is a budget class yacht with amazing service on board. She offers some superb naturalist itineraries, including some of the more intimate and less frequented sites the Galápagos have to offer.

The vessel carries complimentary snorkels and wetsuits, and is equipped with two tenders (or "pangas"). With a maximum of 14 guests, as opposed to the more common 16, the Danubio Azul really does give you are more intimate and friendly experience.

We personally cruised with this vessel. Featuring 5 double cabins, each with air-conditioning and en suite bathrooms, the Danubio Azul featu … Read more about Danubio Azul

Food & Drinks

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.

Want to go back on Danubio Azul Guide George excellent. Very informative and always available. He got on well with all of us and was a good diver and snorkeller. Food. How the chef made us meals I do not know. They were excellent. After every trip ashore there were little snacks and juice waiting. Boat. Nice comfortable boat except on night cruising. You need sea sickness tablets. It's a small boat so probably moves more than a big one. The rooms were cleaned every day. Captain Wilson. Very pleasant and always on the look out for interesting animals. Crew were very pleasant and helpful. Trips to islands. Always very good with tons to see. Snorkelling at Devil's Crown was outstanding. Only issue was getting back on Panga after snorkelling as there are no ropes and being hauled on board was not dignified We had a Taxi laid on from Puerto Ayora to the boat. Free. Make sure you tip well. These guys and ladies deserve it. Feedback from: https://goo.gl/3rcHFG

Ich will wieder zurück! Der Guide George ist exzellent, sehr gut informiert und immer verfügbar. Er hat sich mit allen gut verstanden und war ein gute Taucher und Schnorchler. Essen: wie der Küchenchef es geschafft hat zu kochen, keine Ahnung. Es war jedoch köstlich. Nach jedem Ausflug warteten Snacks und frisch gepresste Säfte auf uns. Schiff: schönes, gemütliches Schiff abgesehen von den nächtlichen Bewegungen - man braucht anti-Übelkeitstabletten. Da es ein kleines Schiff ist, bewegt es sich mehr, als ein großes. Die Zimmer wurden täglich gereinigt. Kapitän Wilson war großartig und spähte immer nach Tieren für uns. Die Crew war hilfsbereit und ging großartig mit den Gästen um. Die Inselausflüge waren immer toll, mit einer Menge Sehenswürdigkeiten. Das Schnorcheln am Devil´s Crown war phänomenal. Es war etwas problematisch wieder zurück ins Schlauchboot zu klettern aber man schafft es. Versichern Sie sich, dass Sie gutes Trinkgeld dalassen. Diese Männer und Frauen haben es wirklich verdient.
