Itinerary

Day 1THU: Arrive SCY Airport. Transfer to yacht. Briefings & check dive.

A guide will meet you at the airport and escort you to the yacht. Lunch, briefings and a check dive.

Day 2FRI: AM: Punta Carrion. North Baltra/Seymour.

AM: Punta Carrion is located on the island of Santa Cruz. Sometimes we get lucky and see mola molas here. It’s a good first dive to acclimatize to Galapagos diving.

PM: Seymour is an island known for having great dives. Sightings include mobulas, white tip reef sharks, Galapagos sharks, sometimes Hammerheads and many fish species.

Day 3SAT: Wolf

Wolf is one of the reasons Galapagos is on most divers’ bucketlist. Scientists have designated Wolf and Darwin (as they are so close together) the sharkiest place on earth because they have the largest biomass of sharks on the planet, 17.5 tons of sharks per hectare (2.47 acres).  Only divers visit Wolf. There are no land visits. Wolf is located 115 miles north of the central islands.

Sightings include huge schools of Hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks,Whale sharks (in season), Silky sharks, Eagle Rays, Sea Lions, Fur Seals, Mantas, Turtles, Jacks, Trumpetfish, Butterfly fish, Morish Idols, Moray Eels and Dolphins. Some sites at Wolf are covered in coral and all of the tropical fish species that live on coral reefs. Dive sites include Shark Bay, The Landslide, La Banana and Islote La Ventana. On the island itself, there are hundreds of thousands of seabirds including all 3 types of boobies in Galapagos – Red footed, blue footed and Nazca. There are frigates, pelicans, lava gulls and red billed tropicbirds.

Day 4SUN: Darwin

Darwin’s Arch was (and is) an icon, the symbol of diving the Galapagos. Since it’s 2021 collapse, it is now known as Darwin’s Pillars. It is located 229 km / 142 miles north of the central islands. In addition to Wolf, this is where we find massive schools of Hammerheads. Huge, pregnant Whale sharks pass through Darwin each year for reasons unknown.

Darwin is the warmest dive site in Galapagos due to the tropical Panama current. You spend a lot of the dive stationary, on a platform that drops into the blue where Hammerheads swim against the current. It’s like being on the side of a Hammerhead highway watching traffic pass. You leave the platform to swim out into the blue when a Whale shark is spotted. That sometimes means swimming through the Hammerheads, a truly magnificent experience you will carry with you forever.

Day 5MON: Darwin. Wolf

AM: 2 more dives at Darwin.

PM: 1-2 more dives at Wolf in the afternoon with an optional night dive.

Day 6TUE: Jan-May: Cabo Marshall. June - Dec: Cabo Douglas. Punta Vicente Roca.

Cabo Marshall (Jan-June) is located on the eastern side of Isabela Island. Giant mantas, large schools of barracudas, Galapagos sharks, Sea Lions, Flightless Cormorants and enormous schools of Black Striped Salemas in Galapagos. These tiny fish can be so numerous, a diver inside the school cannot be seen, only the bubbles rising above the school. 4 dives at 2 Cabo Marshall dive sites.

Cabo Douglas (July – Dec) is located at the westernmost island in Galapagos, Fernandina, an active volcano. It has erupted twice in the last decade. It is the ‘hot spot’ in Galapagos. This is the only site where you will see marine iguanas feeding underwater. Other sightings include penguins, sea lions, turtles and flightless cormorants.

Punta Vicente Roca (July – Dec). If you look at a map, Isabela Island looks uncannily similar to a seahorse. Punta Vicente Roca is located on the northwestern side of Isabela just below the ‘mouth’ of the seahorse. Isabela has 5 active volcanoes.

Punta Vicente Roca is a Mola Mola (Sunfish) cleaning station, has large turtle populations, the endemic Galapagos Bullhead shark, Penguins, Sea Horses, Sea Lions and many species of fish not found elsewhere in Galapagos. It is not uncommon to find yourself diving with an endemic Flightless Cormorant.

Day 7WED: Cousins Rock. Highlands of Santa Cruz & Puerto Ayora

AM: Cousins Rock is a small islet, the remains of an eroded crater sticking up out of the sea. On the eastern side, the rock cascades down in a series of recessed ledges strewn with black coral, which is bright green under the water. Taking cover in the coral, you may find Seahorses, Frogfish, Octopus, Turtles and the elusive Longnose Hawkfish. It’s not unusual to spot pelagics from Cousins including Mantas, Eagle rays, Mobulas and Hammerhead. Sea lions are fur seals are also at Cousins. 1-2 dives depending on the mood of the divers.

PM: Highlands of Santa Cruz. You will visit a private ranch where you will have to chance to see the iconic giant tortoises in the wild. Afterwards, you will visit the town of Puerto Ayora. 

Day 8THU: Departure

After breakfast, you will be escorted to the airport for your return flight.
