The Galapagos Marine Reserve is the second largest marine reserve in the world and, due to the convergence of cold and warm currents, hosts a myriad of sea life for you to enjoy. The underwater world of Galapagos was voted best diving in 2000 by Rodale's Scuba Diving Magazine and is one of the last places where you can dive with large schools of sharks! Let Zenith Travel be your guide as you explore these internationally acclaimed waters.
With over 500 species of fish in the islands, 17% of which are endemic, there is a lot to see under the sea. At each of our dive sites you have an excellent chance of seeing a variety of invertebrates, reef fish, eels, rays, sea turtles, and sharks along and observing their fascinating behaviors.
What are you waiting for? We offer daily trips to the central island destinations (trips depart at 7am). Contact us today to arrange your dive trip in an underwater paradise!
We use only the best dive technology and 7mm wetsuits to keep you comfortable as you encounter thermoclines. Prices listed include all equipment, dive boat, Dive Master guides, a snack onboard, lunch and clean towel.
We dive in dive sites all over the Galapagos Islands. Here we list the Galapagos dive sites in the order of their level of challenge to the divers' skills, Academy Bay being the easiest.
ACADEMY BAY US $220
This is the bay of Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island with 5 dive sites all within 20 minutes from our base by boat. Three of the sites are generally calm with little current; ideal for students or novices. At the other two sites, the dives could be a little more complicated if there is a current so they are suitable for intermediate or expert divers. Frolic with sea lions or listen as the damselfish munches away at its algae farm. You may also see marine iguanas, rays, and even sharks all just outside your hotel's door!
