Amazing pelagic encounters
Where we are diving
The Galapagos Islands are among the most geographically remote on earth. They are truly pristine and one of the very few geographic locations on Earth that remains untouched by man. Fifteen main islands and countless smaller ones dot the archipelago. Three major ocean currents provide the resident marine life with a constant source of nutrients and contributes to amazing biodiversity from big animals to small invertebrates. Galapagos is unquestionably the hammerhead shark capital of the world – but also home to the sleek Galapagos shark, horn sharks, white tips, silkies, and an occasional apex visitor like the tiger shark. Add whale sharks, giant manta rays, and graceful rays of many descriptions, throw in some giant schools of fish, incredible macro marine life, and now you realize just how exciting Galapagos diving can be. You’ll appreciate Trip Leader Pat Purkhiser’s extensive diving knowledge and experience. A marine biology educator and conservation advocate, Pat’s background is a real benefit to this trip. Advanced certifications or higher are required for this trip. Limited availability.
