Galapagos Diving Holidays

Charles Darwin's Dream

Tailor-made Galapagos diving holidays

Diving holidays in the Galapagos are for the adventurous. The Galapagos Islands: remote, iconic and we know them well. What we don’t know, we research and find out for you from our personally chosen ‘in situ’ team.

Charles Darwin knew this area rather well too, with the islands named after the giant tortoises that are so strongly connected with this region. Experiencing and diving the Galapagos is quite simply a life’s dream come true. It’s a feeling of being somewhere that has literally shaped the path of mankind.

To get to the Galapagos Diving Holidays you must fly to Ecuador; we recommend flying into Guayaquil. Flights are via Europe with KLM or Iberia Airlines, or the USA via Miami. Flight time is approximately 16 hours from London.

It is recommended that you spend one night either side of your liveaboard in Ecuador. A two hour domestic flight takes you to the Galapagos Islands to board your boat. Are you ready to take on the Galapagos, the diving holidays of a lifetime?

What divers love about the Galapagos Islands

  • Dive the iconic Darwin and Wolf
  • Unique gathering of marine life, birds and the famous giant tortoises
  • Dive all year round; with June - October prime time for whale sharks
  • Schools of hammerheads, rays, whale sharks and mola molas
