Come to America to explore Darwin’s Arch, Fernandina and Isabela Islands, and other breathtaking places featuring endemic biodiversity.

This experience will blow your mind away! Observing sharks and marine megafauna, and, perhaps, having a dolphin pass by overhead is not something you get to experience every day. Huge schools of fish and other species that inhabit the coral-covered platform can be sighted in the blue waters of this natural paradise. With a 15-day liveaboard dive experience, you will double your chances of seeing the big marine wildlife you’re coming for!
The highlands of the Galapagos are as magnificent as their sea life. We will travel back in time to the formation of lava tubes, spatter cones, and the remains of two types of hardened lava. Prepare yourself to observe unique animals such as iguanas, birds, and the famous giant tortoises.
Photography instruction and practical advice about photography on land and underwater will take place directly onboard.
This scuba diving trip living amongst distinct animal species is an adventure that will be stamped in your heart forever!

Every year, only a few shark conservation dive departures are offered – sometimes, there is only one dive organized per year. The schedule is always designed to align with the best shark diving season and the best months to dive in the islands of the Galapagos in general (July – October). These trips frequently sell out so we encourage you to book early to reserve your spot. For example, the 2023 departure is already full, and there is only one departure planned for 2024, so contact us today if you’re interested in learning more!
