Galapagos scuba diving tours
Scuba Diving in Galapagos Islands
For many of us, taking walking tours around the beautiful Galapagos Islands simply isn't enough, and as such, more and more people are taking full advantage of the Galapagos scuba diving opportunities available to experienced and intermediate level divers on the islands.
To scuba dive in the Galapagos islands is to partake in an experience like no other, for as the islands themselves are famed for their flora and fauna, the reefs and coves surrounding them can take intimate wildlife experiences to a whole new level. Here we find an underwater landscape vastly different from the coral reefs found in other diving resorts, with the volcanic activity of the islands encouraging a much wider, wilder and more unique range of underwater species. The shores of the Galapagos islands keep up the area's reputation for diversity of fauna, with several large and small species jostling for space in the rocky inlets which are a feature of all the major and minor Galapagos islands.
The Galapagos Scuba Experience
A day experiencing Galapagos scuba diving is a day like no other – you never know quite what you are going to find! You could be swimming through vast schools of fish, or watching the famous marine iguanas eating their seaweed diet from the underwater rock features. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to catch in your sights some of the giants of the ocean; Galapagos sharks, white tip sharks, hammerheads, whale sharks, possibly even the vast humpback or sperm whales who occasionally stop by these incredible shores on their long migratory journeys.
For wildlife photographers, nature enthusiasts and those looking for a new challenge which will yield incredible views, scuba diving in the Galapagos islands is an experience which will not be soon forgotten.
Be Guided By Experts into the Deep
It is worth noting that Galapagos scuba diving is not for the inexperienced or unsteady. In fact, the Galapagos can be a very challenging place in which to dive, with cold waters, heavy currents and strong surges being a well known feature of the coasts here. However, there are many specially trained diving experts on hand to guide you through your underwater adventure, and ensure that you commence and end your dives in safe places, with people on hand to aid you and help you feel safe and secure.
You will never find yourself diving in dangerous conditions or bad weather, and you'll always have the correct equipment (including wetsuits and diving weights, amongst others) provided to assist you and ensure you have the experience of a lifetime.
