This diving cruise on board the Humboldt Explorer 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.

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.

The trip was great, would definitively return Loved the diving. However that's more a highlight of the Galapagos themselves. The Humboldt shines because it spends more time at wolf than the other liveaboards. So many Hammerheads <3. The food was good. You will look forward to it every time the bell rings for meal time. The desserts are however we're meh. Except for some yummy tree leches and s delicious chocolate and passion fruit mousse. The crew is friendly but more to themselves. They are happy to interact if interacted with but will not impose on you. They were great. I love non bunk bed cabins and the cabins are cozy, the AC amazing. And the baths had a good amount of space. I was in cabin 3. The only cons are that the first day and half are kinda meh. Day one is a 15 minute 5 meter max check out dive. It's useful but I wish they just bulked it in with the second days itinerary to make a full day. I would prefer the boat to have had one more dive guide so that it wasn't 2 groups of 8. And would've liked that the guides have a pro camera for underwater pictures. But that is something I felt spoiled with on a previous liveaboard. Other than that my trip was great! Would definitely return. Open bar (liquor included) was so sweet. Bring your own gloves and get a reef hook. You will be so thankful you brought one. Feedback from: https://goo.gl/YTJuEB

Fantastisch Es war unglaublich Schulen von Hammerhaien zu sehen, das Tauchen war der Wahnsinn. Die Strömungen sind allerdings stark, wir waren Tauchanfänger mit 25 Tauchgängen und es war machbar aber auch herausfordernd. Quelle: https://goo.gl/YTJuEB

Fantastic trip Loved seeing all the schools of hammerheads and other sharks. The diving was out of this world, best dive trip of our lives. Currents are strong. We were relative beginners at only 25 dives but in decent shape; and this was definitely very challenging for us. Feedback from: https://goo.gl/YTJuEB

Tolles Tauchen mit großen Tieren Es gab hunderte von Hammerhaien bei den Tauchplätzen Darwin und Wolf. Auf die Sicherheit wurde auch sehr gut geachtet, tolle Tauchguides! Das Briefing war gut vorbereitet und detailliert. Unser Guide wusste unglaublich viel. Auch der Rest der Besatzung war stark. Es war schön einen Whirlpool zu haben, um sich aufzuwärmen. Wir würden diese Kreuzfahrt wieder machen, auf der Humboldt Explorer. Quelle: https://goo.gl/YTJuEB
