Galapagos often represents the crown jewel in people’s scuba diving bucket list and is definitely one to get under your weight belt if you have the chance. Famed as the place where Charles Darwin discovered his theory of evolution, and lead to him authoring one of the most essential texts in biology, ‘ The Origin of Species.’ This group of islands off the coast of Ecuador is famed for its natural beauty and diversity of marine life. Most divers here will book liveaboard trips and most itineraries will include land tours to see the giant Galapagos Tortoise, but diving here can be done from both liveaboard and resort, Galapagos is a once in a lifetime experience, we recommend doing both. From a diving perspective, Darwin and Wolfe are the most popular destinations, and only accessible by liveaboard. Here you will encounter Hammerhead sharks, silky sharks, Galapagos sharks, whale shark, and turtles. On other dives sites such as Isabela Island, you can swim with sea lions, penguins and marine Iguanas. Santa Cruz island has a stunning flamingo lagoon and mangrove forest and is home to the Charles Darwin Research Station.
