South America Galapagos Islands Cruise

Galapagos Sky Liveaboard Dive Cruises

Galapagos Sky liveaboard dive cruises offer a total of approximately 17-19 dives split amongst 5.5 of 8 days, plus 3 land excursions. Diving in this world-renowned destination is done entirely from pangas and is considered advanced as it occurs in the presence of strong currents, cold water and at times limited visibility. Each departure includes 4 daily dives at the remote Wolf and Darwin islands—some of the crown jewels of world-class diving.

This dive-focused itinerary also spends time experiencing the diversity of underwater life around the Galapagos’ central islands. Here, take in resident mantas and sharks, plus seasonal whale sharks, and photograph little Galapagos invertebrates in vibrant color while watching for mola molas. 

Walk in the steps of Charles Darwin, with 3 guided land excursions. Take in the beautiful panoramic views of Pinnacle Rock and distant lagoons following a climb to the top of Bartolome. Visit the Santa Cruz Highlands in search of Galapagos tortoises in their natural habitat. Enjoy an unguided visit to the Charles Darwin Research Center during free time in the port area of Puerto Ayora. And explore the Interpretation center in San Cristobal where much about Galapagos history and conservation efforts can be learned.

Galapagos Sky is a dedicated liveaboard dive boat, equipped with divers’ needs in mind. Her warm interiors, attentive and experienced crew, open bar and gourmet meals make for a dive trip experience that’s memorable both in and out of the water. This dive-ready yacht is prepared to introduce you to new dive friends, but is also available to be booked as one of our private Galapagos yacht charters for your own select group of 16 or fewer.
