Our Galapagos Archipelago Diving Blog

Whenever we visit a destination, or hear something interesting about it, we like to write a blog. On this page you can find all of our blogs about diving in the Galapagos Archipelago. Hopefully these can inspire your own diving adventure there.

The Best Diving Holiday Destinations for Summer

Summer. Even thinking the word brings on visions of Pimm's in the garden, the distinctive waft of barbecue and most of us Brits sporting some fairly interesting tan lines (read: burn lines). And thankfully Summer is finally on its way. But while the Great British Summer can be marvellous, it's fair to say it can also be - how to put this - fickle, at the best of times. Which is why it's good to have a Plan B, namely a summer holiday, in the pipeline. And it just so happens that some of the best dive destinations around the world are perfect during the summer months, but availability is going like hotcakes so the time is nigh to get booking, people! Here are our top six dive destinations this summer…

Animal Encounters: Diving with Hammerhead Sharks

There is no mistaking how the hammerhead shark got its name: the head is flattened and extends outwards into the shape of a hammer, known as a cephalofoil. They appear so otherworldly since the head seems completely out of place on a fish with such a streamlined body.

Animal Encounters: Dive with Manta Rays

To dive with manta rays is near the top of most divers' bucket list and for very good reason: soaring through the water like birds of the sea they are a stunning sight. Manta, meaning blanket in Spanish, appropriately describes the manta ray which can have a wingspan of up to 7.5m and weigh up to 2,900 lbs.

Galapagos Diving - The Best Dive of My Life

After my first year at university I decided I needed a well earned three-month trip to South America. So aged 20 and full of the confidence of the youth, I packed my bags and what little money I had been able to save by working as a labourer at a petrochemical plant, and set off all on my lonesome for a trip to Ecuador and Colombia. I had no real idea what I wanted to do or where I wanted to go, but that's why it was so exciting.
