At Academy Bay diving we get many enquiries about what can be expected from scuba diving in the Galapagos Islands. The wildlife is rarely doubted due to the plethora we have here but what are the water conditions, are there currents and, how warm, or not, is the water?
The animal encounters and diverse scenery of the islands are a nature photographer’s dream. Stay on the trails, keep the recommended distance and follow your guide for some amazing photo opportunities. For those who want to make the most of the chance to capture photographs of the animals, some tips may help.
Scuba diving in the Galapagos is a bucket list item for my divers. With an abundance of marine life, beauty both above and below the water, the largest biomass of sharks in the world, an offering of drift dives, deep dives and reef dives, it is easy to understand why! But what exactly does a day of scuba diving look like?
