Consisting of 13 major islands scattered across 1000km of the Pacific Ocean, the Galapagos Islands are a unique otherworldly experience of spectacular natural beauty. Several oceanic currents meet around the islands, creating the perfect environment for abundant and varied marine life.
The mix of sea temperatures welcomes both temperate and tropical fish species, yet the main attractions for divers are the large schools of rays and sharks which can be seen all year round. From May to November, the nutrient-rich waters bring in the whales (Melon Headed, Pilot and Humpback) on their migration route to the coast of Ecuador. Combine all this will inquisitive seals, penguins and the turtles for the islands are famed and you have an unforgettable diving experience.
