Why dive in Galapagos

Once you dive Galapagos your life and diving will NEVER be the same! Galapagos offer a unique variety on wildlife that you only can find here!


In Galapagos you can actually DIVE with the mightiest of all sharks… the Whale Shark! Galapagos is the only place in the world where 99.8% of the whale sharks are truly HUGE adult females swimming up to 15 meter / 45+ feet in length! 

Nearly all of them seem to be pregnant as they have massively extended abdomens. Galapagos might be THE place where whale sharks give birth - which is one of the reasons that scientists from all over the world come to Galapagos to study this UNIQUE population.


Due to the different cold and warm currents Galapagos offers such a variety on wildlife that you ONLY can find there!

Dive with hammerhead, Galapagos & Silky sharks, Whale Sharks, turtles, Molas, Marine Iguanas, Eagle rays, mantas, dolphins, Jacks, Tuna, Red-lipped batfish and many other unique marine life!
