Scuba Diving the Galapagos Islands: 30th June – 7th July, 2019

 

Scuba Dive the legendary Galapagos islands, with DIVEIndia Outbound

 

The Galapagos islands of Ecuador need no introduction for those who have even the slightest curiosity in the natural world. Discovered by Spanish sailors in the 1500’s, these fabled islands became Ecuadorean territory in 1832, just 3 years before Charles Darwin set foot on them. The rest as they say is history. In modern times, the Galapagos islands are on the bucket list of anyone who dreams of seeing gigantic land tortoises, blue footed boobies, the finches that Darwin made famous, iguanas that swim into churning waters to feast on the rich algae that grows below the surface.
Divers return with stories of schooling hammerheads, sea lions that swim right by your nose as if you were a play thing, patrolling Galapagos sharks, silky sharks, lazy white tips, dive bombing penguins, whale sharks that chase the cold waters of the Humboldt current. Schools of fish so large they block out the light from above. Squadrons of rays that glide effortlessly in the currents.
