You can catch sight of much of it on a diving trip in the Galapagos Islands.
The Galapagos Islands are actually part of the South American country of Ecuador, but they lie 563 miles away from the western coast of Ecuador’s mainland and consist of over 20 islands, with the result that there is no shortage of sea to enjoy. And, of course, by “enjoy”, we don’t just mean looking at the water – we also mean diving into it!
A stay in the islands arranged by Wildfoot Travel can include time strapping on the vital diving equipment before disappearing under the water to get close to fish, turtles, rays and even sharks. Want to take a day trip to the sea from one of the main islands or sail to a range of promising dive locations using a live-aboard boat? We can make either a reality.
Actually getting into the sea can be the only option for seeing much of the fascinating Galapagos marine life, and it’s certainly worth the dive, as the animals you could see dolphins, lobsters, crabs, corals and starfish. At certain times of the year, you can also check out migrating whales and even whale sharks.
Expert dive masters
Indeed, certain times of year can be better for seeing particular underwater wildlife than others, which begins to explain why you are likely to much appreciate the expert dive masters that you can turn to during your diving trip at the Galapagos Islands. These are qualified divers who can point out which diving locations have which attractions, and also ensure your safety through, among other practices, warning you what dangers lurk where.
We hardly have sufficient space in this article to go into the finer details of the amazing feasts for the eyes that are in store on a Wildfoot Travel diving trip at the Galapagos Islands.
