Galapagos Island Hopping Dive Trip

A_HammerheadsYes, there is another great way to dive the Galapagos:  Island Hopping Dive Trips!  Live-aboards may be the only way to dive Wolf and Darwin, but that doesn’t mean they’re for everyone nor does it mean there isn’t great diving elsewhere in the Galapagos! See hammerheads, schools of rays, giant mantas, sea turtles, sea lions, huge schools of fish of all sizes and penguins, too!  Did I mention it’s possible to see all that on just one dive?  And that the cost is about 50% of a live-aboard?
Our Galapagos Island Hopping Dive Trip is truly a magical and certainly an economical alternative to Galapagos live-aboards.  Our Dive Trips are private dive charters with a maximum of 8 divers all sharing great dives from 3-4 islands in 1 of the 7 Underwater Wonders of the World.   Where can you dive with sharks anymore without chumming the water?  The Galapagos.  Where can you see the healthy abundance in both varieties and numbers that existed 30 years ago?  The Galapagos.

While any diving in the Galapagos is great diving (and going beyond the obvious benefits of seeing multiple islands from above and below), the under-rated advantage an island-hopping dive trip has over staying put on one island for multiple days of diving is that you end up with the same comradery as a live-aboard. You travel together, you dive together and you often spend your evenings together. This does not happen with the inevitable turnover on daily dive boats.  This shared experience is bonding and the comradery that results adds a quality to the experience that boosts the trip into a whole ‘nother level…as does the ability to check out the spectacular Galapagos wildlife above…and below… 3-4 different islands.

Most who have dived with us agree that their diving is spoiled after this Island Hopping experience.  Diving will never be the same again. Hammerheads, Galapagos Sharks, White-Tipped Reef Sharks, Silkys, seasonal Whale Sharks, Giant Mantas, Schools of various Rays – Eagle Rays, Stingrays, Golden Rays, Mobulas, an abundance of schooling fish of all sizes from small Cardinal Fish to Jacks or Barracudas, Large fields of Garden Eels, Green Morays, Fine-Spotted Eels, Tiger Snake Eels, Seahorses, Nudibranches, Sea Cucumbers, Octopus and, of course, Sea Turtles and Sea Lions on pretty much every dive.  Add to that diving endemic birds like Blue-Footed Boobies,  the only Marine Iguana on the planet and of course, Galapagos Penguins and it’s easy to see how it might just spoil your diving forever!  Check out our Galapagos Photo Gallery of wildlife above and below.

Our 7 Day / 6 Night Galapagos Island Hopping Dive Program offers great diving from 3 islands: Santa Cruz, Isabela and Floreana.  SPACES AVAILABLE NOVEMBER!!

If you are 6-8 divers, our Galapagos Island Hopping Dive Trip is perfect for you.  We can depart anytime you want, customize where you want to go and it won’t cost any more than our normal departures.  Imagine it…your own private dive charter in the Galapagos at prices too low to believe!

Our Galapagos Island Hopping Dive Program is not just a dive trip…it is a private charter in the Galapagos that you are going to remember for the rest of your life! And we’ll let you in on a little secret…charter does not always equal more expensive. We know because we invented Galapagos Island Hopping Dive trips.  With us, divers have a choice of Galapagos accommodations ranging from Premier, Superior and Standard to Economy Class.  You could even rent a posh private villa or sleep in a tent under the stars. It seems most divers fit somewhere in between the two ends of that spectrum, but since where you sleep makes zero difference to how you dive or how much you love diving, we decided to concentrate on putting together a great group of divers and could care less where you sleep at night…in a manner of speaking.  We did select what we believe to be ‘best of class’ in each price range of Galapagos hotels because we want you well rested and raring to go for the day’s diving.
