M/V Galapagos Sky -7 Night Cruise

Our Live-Aboard Diving Cruise to Galapagos is seven nights and the itinerary offers a total of approximately 17 – 19 dives (check out dive included) (all weather, current and sea condition dependent) and 3 land excursions on every trip. Diving from tenders/pangas (small inflatable boats) is also the rule and not an exception in this World Renowned destination.

Diving in currents from Tenders is the rule not the exception in Galapagos!

We visit Wolf and Darwin Islands on every trip – the diving there is arguably the best in the world! The Galapagos Sky itinerary has two days with long (you’ll be asleep) overnight navigations in order to get to these crown jewels of world class diving.

You will enjoy 4 dives per day at Wolf and Darwin.

While diving the “central islands” on your Galapagos Sky cruise you will experience the diversity of Galapagos diving. Besides our resident mantas, sharks, and seasonal whale sharks, this is also the time to photograph little Galapagos invertebrates in vibrant color as well as keep an eye out for mola molas.

During your time in the central islands, you’ll also walk in the steps of Charles Darwin, with 3 guided land excursions. Your first land experience you will enjoy will be the beautiful panoramic views as you climb to the top of Bartolome.  Views will include those of Pinnacle Rock in the bay and also lagoons in the distance that those who have watch “Master and Commander” with Russel Crowe will recognize! You will also visit later in the cruise the Highlands in Santa Cruz in search of the Galapagos Tortoises in their natural habitat while later in the day you can finish this excursion with an unguided visit to the Charles Darwin Research Center during free time in the port area.  Lastly on Sunday morning our guests will explore the Interpretation center in San Cristobal where much about Galapagos history and conservation efforts can be learned. This visit occurs just before your return flight to Ecuador.

trainingDiving in the Galapagos is advanced due to strong currents, varying visibility and cold water. Divers must be comfortable in these conditions, as well as have very good buoyancy and be able to do negative (sometimes rapid) back-roll entries & descents from small boats. Recommended requirements include 50-100 open water dives, experience in currents, ability in removing gear in water and ability in getting into small boats in choppy seas.

 

If you don’t have the experience but want to go, start planning ahead NOW!

With proper planning, the Seaweed Diver staff can have you ready to have the dive trip of a lifetime.
