In the afternoon, board the Galapagos Sky to meet the crew and your new shipmates. Then participate in a mandatory safety briefing and drill before heading to Isla Lobos for a check-out dive!

Day 2

Bartolome-Santiago-Cousins Rocks

Today begins with a land tour in Bartolome, where you can climb and experience breathtaking views of the islands. Afterwards, take two dives in Cousins Rocks. These dives are itinerary favorites, as they provide great opportunities to see species such as sea horses, corals, frog fish, octopus and scorpion fish. They are also fantastic dives to search for large schools of barracuda and hammerhead sharks.

Day 3

Wolf Island

Most experienced divers will agree, Wolf and Darwin can provide some of the best diving encounters in the world! Wolf Island is a great place to see several species of shark, including hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, and occasionally whale sharks. You many also find dolphins, large schools of tuna, spotted eagle rays, barracudas, sea lions and sea turtles. During the night dive, you may even spot red lipped bat fish walking along the bottom of the sea!

Day 4

Darwin Island

Darwin Island is recognized as one of the best diving spots in the world. While diving, you may find hammerhead sharks, silky sharks, Galapagos sharks, large pods of dolphins, mobula rays, and a myriad of different fish such as yellow fin tuna and skip jack. You may even see tiger sharks, black and blue marlin and killer whales!

Day 5

Darwin Island-Wolf Island

Three dives are planned during day five, two at Darwin Island and one at Wolf Island. After diving, journey back to the central islands.

Day 6

Isabela - Santiago

Dive at Cape Marshall, located on the north-eastern side of Isabela island, and see tons of manta rays and mobula rays, turtles and white tip sharks. Cape Marshall is also home to huge schools of the endemic salemas and feeding sea lions. Be sure to keep an eye out for snappers, yellow fin tuna, chevron barracude, rainbow runners, wahoo, parrot fishes, and tiger snake eels.

Day 7

Santa Cruz Island

While diving in Isla Pinzon, off Santa Cruz Island, you have the opportunity to dive and encounter a variety of species of sharks, sea lions, mantas, eagle rays and moray eels. Isla Pinzon is also home to a large variety of fish species such as yellow tailed surgeonfish, king angelfish, moorish idols, steel pompanos, snappers, grunts, creole fish and barracuda.
