Diving with schools of hammerhead sharks is the reason many divers come to Galapagos. It is an awe inspiring experience and you would be unlikely not to see them.
Who doesn’t want top lay with these cheeky and curious creatures. Lucky for us they frequent all our dive sites.
The Galapagos sharks are shy, but when they do come out it is a truly unique experience.
If you are lucky enough to dive with the Molo Mola it is an experience you will never forget. They like the cold water, so you need to tough it out in the colder months to see them!
A school of spotted eagle rays is one of the most graceful spectacles you can see. They are just beautiful, and lucky for us, they can be seen in all of the dive sites.
When you look into the eye of a green sea turtle you just feel wisdom.
The are big, beautiful and wise and floating around every corner of the Galapagos.
The giant manta ray is a site to behold. With a wing span normally reaching 2-3 meters it dwarfs any diver it passes.

Also these guys are very professional, the are organized and take care that everything runs smoothly. They are fun to be around and there is a nice athmosphere on the boat!

Alos the guides group the divers into different skill levels so that each has the best experience, according to their level.
We can definitely recommend diving Academy Bay as our experience was super positive. Also at the end they give you the pics and videos the guides took for free, if you have an sd-card. (Thanks Byron for all the great footage!)
Thanks again to Alice, Byron, Oscar, Franc and Mr. Holmes!!

To many the Galapagos Islands are a far off mythical place where giant tortoises roam wild, where sea lions playfully nip marine iguanas as they dive for their lunch, where schools of hammerhead sharks cruise the ocean floors and rock reefs between thousands of fish, and where the skies are filled with majestic birds of many types… Find Out More
