Get to know the highlights of Galápagos with this Diving cruise on board the beautiful Humboldt Explorer! On this Expedition Cruise, you will discover the incredible wildlife of the Galápagos Islands: This diving cruise will take you to the most remote islands of the archipelago, Darwin and Wolf, where you will explore what are arguably some of the world's best diving spots. Renowned for the large schools of hammerhead sharks that gather here (for reasons scientists still don't fully understand), Darwin and Wolf are the tips of huge, long-extinct undersea volcanoes that grew up over half a mile from the sea floor. You will enjoy spectacular diving here, and among the species you are likely to encounter are hammerhead sharks, whale sharks, a huge variety of rays, green turtles, and a myriad of tropical reef fish. Whales and dolphins are also frequent visitors. Despite the isolation of these two islands, there are plenty of terrestrial inhabitants, including seals, frigate birds, boobies, and marine iguanas. Please be aware that both Darwin and Wolf are advanced diving spots that require recent experience and a minimum of 50 logged open-water dives. Nitrox is available upon request. Please inquire with us for more details about this incredible adventure to the remotest islands of the Galápagos Archipelago. On North Seymour, an incredible hike and snorkeling session awaits you. This island is the archipelago condensed into very little space, and you'll be able to see almost all the iconic Galápagos species in just a few hours. On San Cristóbal, you will be able to snorkel in crystal clear waters, relax with sea lions on pristine white sand beaches and learn more about the evolution of giant tortoises. During your time on Santa Cruz, you will have the chance to observe the famous Galápagos Giant Tortoises in the wild and learn more about the preservation and scientific study of these amazing animals. On Santiago, an island formerly inhabited by pirates, you will be able to enjoy hikes and dinghy rides.

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.
