Galapagos cruises Encantada sailboat scuba diving trips

Diving in the Galapagos Islands is quite simply incredible. Rodale's Scuba Diving magazine ranks it as the best dive destination in the world.

Galapagos scuba diving

It´s no secret that the Galapagos Islands are considered one of the premier diving destinations in the world, and for good reason!

The Galapagos marine reserve ranked number one for scuba diving in the Indo Pacific region for the categories of Healthiest Marine Environment, Best Big Animal Dive and Best Advanced Diving.

If  the terrestrial Galapagos finches and blue-footed boobies that walk and fly on  the volcanic islands inspired Darwin, then what swims and waddles underwater will give you your own theories on life's marvels.  Hold your mask and regulator  in one hand, your equipment in another, close your eyes tight and imagine what  awaits you in only one quick flip over the edge of the red hull of the M/S Encantada

Knowing  that one-quarter of the marine life surrounding the Galapagos is endemic, you  will wish that your mask somehow allowed you to see 360 so you would not miss  the unique life seen only here.
 
The  currents that converge upon the equatorial waters of the Galapagos from the  north and south, bring life to these volcanic ocean floors and waters. The rich  nutritive water creates an environment in which life abounds and often evolve  into strange lifeforms like the marine iguana, the world´s only lizard that  dives and feeds in the ocean, or equatorial penguins, without the fat of their  Antarctic counterparts.
 
Amid  these rarities, you will find yourself unable to escape entire armies of bright  angelfish, the sight of ramora fish tickling the mass of a whale shark, and the  playful enthusiasm of sea lions.

Hailed by the ocean-explorers organization,  CEDAM International, as one of the seven wonders of the underwater world,  divers, guided by the Encantada's marine guide, can explore this wonder first  hand.

The underwater world of the Galapagos is spectacular!

Diving in Galapagos is definitely an experience unto itself and should not be missed. Diving is permitted in specific zones of the Marine Reserve where you will be surrounded by sea lions, penguins many different species of rays, including the giant manta, colorful reef fish, marine turtles, marine iguanas, sharks of various species, including the scalloped hammerhead shark (sharks in the Galapagos are non aggressive), and many other interesting and unique sea creatures of the Galapagos. There are special dive sites to accommodate everyone from beginners, to intermediate and experienced divers. Each site is a unique and varied experience sure to be enjoyed.

By  combining the experiences of exploring the Islands by boat, foot, and by scuba  diving, the M/S Encantada gives its guests an opportunity that Darwin could only  have dreamt of.

The itinerary aboard The Encantada is well organized for all of our passengers, divers and non divers alike. On a daily basis we present the best in land and marine excursions with exciting activities planned for everyone.
