Liveaboard Diving in the Galapagos

If you only do one liveaboard in your life, this should be it.

Unless you've been living under a rock, chances are you've heard of the Galapagos. Located 600 miles off Ecuador, this chain of islands scattered across the equator in the Pacific Ocean is where divers tick off just about everything in terms of marine life.

The undisputed stars of the archipelago are the Wolf and Darwin islands, which are only accessible by liveaboard. The uninhabited islands lie some 200 miles north of Santa Cruz so the diving really is remote, and what's more, the liveaboards take it in turns to visit so you'll be the only ones at the sites. Why are they so special? These rocky outcrops are cleaning and feeding stations so spectacular marine encounters are all but guaranteed. Prepare to fill logbooks two-fold with hundreds of sharks, marble and eagle ray encounters, hammerheads, manta rays and whale sharks (June to November), as well as fur seals, sea lions, marine iguanas and Galapagos penguins - among 20% of which are endemic.
