Beginners can start at the easier places and proceed to the more difficult ones always led by our Dive Masters or instructors. In all our dives our Dive Masters will be actually diving in the water with you.
Another important aspect of the Dive Masters skills is that, although there is a decompression chamber on the Galapagos Islands, the Dive Masters duty is to guarantee that, to a reasonable extent, you are on the safe side.
Each dive is one tank. We use aluminum tanks with 3000 psi /207 bar, all tanks have the international connection system, if you want to use your own regulator with DIN system you have to bring your own adapter.
The bottom time depends on each passengers air consumption. All dives are in-between 15 and 25 meters because this is where you encounter most of the Galapagos Marine Life
Our Galapagos diving tours rates always include complete SCUBA gear. Diver can decide whether they want to use our equipment or bring their own.

Although the Islands are tropical, there are two markedly different seasons: The warm, humid and sunny season from "December to May" and the dry, windy and not so sunny season from "June to November."
Transitional months are January, April and May. The Warm Season offers hardly any wind (so the sea is usually very calm) and the visibility tends to be better.
In the Dry Season there is more wind, sometimes the sea tends to be choppy and the visibility lower.
Surprisingly, its water temperatures range from 16°C to 27°C degrees Celsius (61°F – 80°F) In our Galapagos diving tours we use full wet (6mm) suits all year around and hoods in the cold season. Regardless season, a thermocline is commonly found below 12-15 meters (37-45 feet).
