Day-Tour Snorkelling & Diving


Daily Tour and Vivencial Fishing boats include snorkelling, and in some cases diving, in their itineraries to visit sites in the Marine Reserve.

The same boat may carry a mix of divers and snorkellers. The sites are listed in our Sightseeing page.

The sites more favured for diving are indicated on the map opposite.

The Santa Cruz boats leave from Puerto Ayora or the Ithibica Canal at Baltra.

Dive Cruises

Galapagos - Dive Cruise Dark


The liveaboard dive cruises can reach places no-one else can - Especially the far north islands of Darwin and Wolf which are 200km north of Puerto Ayora and offer some of the best diving on the planet.

Kicker Rock is one of the best sites in Galapagos and for that reason most liveaboard dive boats used to be based here. But to limit traffic it is now off-limits to big boats and is the exclusive domain of the Daily Tour and Vivencial Fishing boats.

Now the dive boats are split between Santa Cruz and San Cristobal and concentrate on the central and northern sites.

So if you don’t want to miss out, we suggest you stay a couple of days with us and take in Kicker Rock before or after your cruise.
