Land Based Dive Tours

Where can you dive with sharks anymore without chumming the water?  The Galapagos.  Where can you see the healthy abundance in both varieties and numbers that existed 30 years ago?  The Galapagos. 

Most who have dived with us agree that their diving is spoiled after this Island Hopping experience.  Diving will never be the same again. Hammerheads, Galapagos Sharks, White-Tipped Reef Sharks, Silkys, seasonal Whale Sharks, Giant Mantas, Schools of various Rays - Eagle Rays, Stingrays, Golden Rays, Mobulas, an abundance of schooling fish of all sizes from small Cardinal Fish to Jacks or Barracudas, Large fields of Garden Eels, Green Morays, Fine-Spotted Eels, Tiger Snake Eels, Seahorses, Nudibranches, Sea Cucumbers, Octopus and, of course, Sea Turtles and Sea Lions on pretty much every dive.  Add to that diving endemic birds like Blue-Footed Boobies,  the only Marine Iguana on the planet and of course, Galapagos Penguins and it's easy to see how it might just spoil your diving forever!

Look it (as they say in Maine), we aren't going to kid you and pretend you can see hundreds of hammerheads in the central islands like you can see at Darwin and Wolf.  But we feel the central islands in the Galapagos fall short only to the best diving on the planet.  For many, it's the unique blend of marine and topside life that makes the choice of a land-based program preferable to a Galapagos Liveaboard. And ps...the 1-2 combo of a live-aboard and either an island hopping program, an Isabela extension or (the ultimate) a back-to-back dive cruise / naturalist cruise is something we can also assist you with.

We have created programs that are just about diving and programs that offer the Best of Both Worlds - Galapagos Diving and Topside tours. Check out our land-based options below, our Liveaboard options, our Isabela extensions and then get in touch with us so we can figure out exactly what is right for you. Nobody knows diving in the Galapagos like we do.
