Seven Night Diving Packages for Intermediate and Advanced Divers.

Choose from a variety of seven-night diving cruises aboard the best yachts in the Galapagos Islands. Also available are land-based dives with accommodations in hotels on Santa Cruz Island.

The Galapagos Islands are a world class diving destination. Divers exploring the Galapagos will discover an amazing array of sea life. It is not unusual to see bottle nosed dolphins, sea lions, seals, penguins, colonies of moray eels, sea horses, marine iguanas, stingrays, and large schools of tropical fish to name a few. Several sea currents converge on the Galapagos, bringing with them schools of hammerhead sharks, barracuda, and sea turtles. Manta and eagle rays like to feed on the plankton rich waters. On dives to the outer islands of Darwin and Wolf, you may encounter large numbers of whale sharks. Join us for the adventure of a lifetime. View below a sample of the cruises available. Click on the yacht of your choice to see deck plans, pricing, and dive itineraries.

Year Round Destination

The Galapagos Archipelago is located on the Equator and its climate is sub-tropical, allowing cruises to operate on a year round basis. Temperatures are determined almost entirely by the ocean currents that are influenced by the trade winds. Generally, December to May is warm and sunny; June to November is cool and breezy. Most birds nest year round, so you can see courtship, mating, chicks hatching and rearing almost any time of the year.
