Galapagos Scuba Diving Day Tours


Most people who travel to the Galapagos Islands go to see the iconic wildlife on the surface, but the world below the water is just as amazing and even more mysterious. As soon as you enter the water you will be amazed at the abundance of life and color all around you. Scuba diving in the Galapagos Islands allows you to get up close and friendly with curious sea lions, hammerhead sharks, sea turtles, spotted eagle rays, and many more species.

Our Galapagos scuba diving tours have been designed by professional PADI Divemasters and highlight the very best of the Galapagos Marine Reserve. You may add on a day dive to any of our Galapagos Land-Based adventures or we can tailor a comprehensive underwater experience, including multiple Galapagos day dive tours.
