  • Galapagos Diving Conditions

    Weather may vary depending on the season. Have air temperature ranges from 75 (F) or higher in the rainy time (December-May) to the mid 60's (F) during the dry period (June – November), with closely regular sea breezes.
    The water temperature changes in 65 -75 degrees F from December through May and 60 – 70 (F) June through November.
    Visibility is generally between 30 and 80 feet. Currents can range from 1 to 5 knots at the places where we do dive.
    Most divers are complacent with a 7mm wetsuit from June to November, with a hooded vest and gloves and a minimum 5 mm wetsuit from December to May. Gloves and hood are energetically suggested in your scuba equipment.
    The transfer of your dives will be done from small boats with an easy back to roll into the water.
  • Minimum aged regulation

    For most SCUBA certification agencies, the minimum certifiable age for divers is 10 years. As a rule, the agencies regulate 10 and 11 years old to a maximum depth of 40 ft.
    This itinerary offers no diving opportunities for depths less than 40 feet.
    By this regulation, the minimum ages for diving are 15 years old.

    -All divers must be certified as open water scuba divers by an internationally recognized certificated organization.
    -All divers need to be trained divers (we suggest more than 100 logged dives) and have logged at least one dive from the 6 months prior to boarding the vessel.
    -Currents can be very strong and often, divers are obligatory to swim across them.

    -All divers must have a submersible console including SPG & depth gauges, time piece or dive computer with these functions.

    -Alcohol is prohibited during diving activities.
    -All divers must log in and out of the water with a member of the diving crew.
    -All divers must present a proof of diving insurance according to Galapagos National Park regulations.
    -All divers must also use a Dive Alert, a surface signaling device, and an electronic beacon while diving (all available on board).
    -No diver propulsion vehicles (DPVs) may be used aboard.
