Darwin and Wolf Islands

The Galapagos Islands are widely considered one of the finest places on our planet for serious diving.

Needed diving proficiency
level in the Galapagos

Nearly all Galapagos diving spots are recommended only for intermediate to advanced divers because of strong currents, low visibility, thermoclimes, cold water, compression chamber inaccessibility, and sizeable marine creatures (as large as whale sharks).

However, dive operators in Puerto Ayora have outings that take lower-skilled divers to nearby, less-challenging sites.
