Only a few spots left for week 1 of our 2020 Galapagos Dive Adventure - Saturday, July 11-Saturday, July 18, 2020. We have planned this trip at the peak of whale shark season, so the chances are high that we will have a chance to dive with them. We also expect to see an abundance of sharks (hammerheads, Galapagos and reef), rays (manta, golden, eagle, and more), thousands of schooling fish, and a chance to dive with mola mola (sunfish) and marine iguanas.
There is limited space available - contact us now for details.
July 11-18, 2020

The diving is spectacular and challenging. Explorer Ventures recommends that divers are experienced, and have been diving recently (within 6 months of the trip). The water in the Galapagos is cool at this time of year - 65-70F, so will require thicker wetsuits (5mm w. Extra layers or 7mm). There are strong currents that will necessitate divers wearing gloves or carrying reef hooks (to hook into the rock), and comfortable swimming skills (may need to swim against current at certain dive sites).
Ocean Sports has worked with Explorer Ventures in the past and run 2 recent trips to the Galapagos - 2015 and 2016, on the Humboldt Explorer. Our past experiences with them have been exceptional - the crew was absolutely top-notch and extremely safety-conscious. Their briefings were very detailed and they provided additional safety equipment to all divers at Wolf and Darwin Islands (Dive Alert audible alarm, Nautilus GPS). The food and accommodations were awesome and the whole experience was so amazing we couldn’t wait to go again! Because they are one of the very best operators, trips need to be booked years in advance.
Our trip will be aboard a new Explorer Ventures boat - details will be available in August/September 2019. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
