For 4 years in a row (2000 - 2003) , Galapagos was rated as the #1 best overall dive destination in the world by Rodale's Scuba Diving Magazine's " Readers' Choice Awards "

Darwin island and Wolf island are probably the two best dive sites in the world but they are very far to the north (120 miles from the nearest other island) and no land excursions are possible up there. It takes approximately 15 - 20 hours of open ocean travel each way so any trip that includes them on the itinerary usually will spend at least 3 days up there. Therefore any trip which includes Darwin and Wolf islands will have very few land excursion available and will not visit as many of the islands as a trip which does not include them. These itineraries are not appropriate for non-divers.

There are two modalities for dive tours in Galapagos , live aboard dive tours and land based dive tours , here we give you an idea of both so you can make a decision before booking your dive tour in Galapagos.
