Galapagos Sky, Galapagos



  • 3 days of diving at the legendary Wolf and Darwin offered on every trip
  • Free nitrox available for certified divers
  • Enjoy up to 4 dives per day

The Galapagos Sky yacht was built with divers needs in mind to offer year-round world-class diving in the Galapagos Islands. The luxury yacht has been offering dive liveaboard trips in the Galapagos since 2001, and the captain and crew are some of the most experienced in the region. Onboard, 16 passengers are catered to in eight private en-suite guest cabins, each one with two twin or one king-size bed, wardrobe, mirrored cabinet and marine-safe toiletries. The Galapagos Sky liveaboard is fully air-conditioned throughout and offers ample space for rest and relaxation. The main salon features an audio/video entertainment centre and there is a separate dining area where Ecuadorian and international cuisine is served. Dining service is ‘fine’ plated and beverages, including beer and wine with dinner, are included. The top deck is home to loungers for relaxing in between dives or star-gazing in the evening.

Galapagos dive itineraries are 7-nights long and include up to 19 dives - weather dependent. Dives at Wolf and Darwin are the highlight of the trip and 3 days will be spent here with the chance to see whale sharks, mantas and schooling hammerhead sharks. There are also land excursions included to truly experience everything the Galapagos Islands have to offer. The dive deck has warm fresh-water showers and hot towels are offered after every dive. Diving from tenders makes getting to and from the dive site hassle-free.

Spoiled on the Galapagos Sky

The diving in Galapagos is fabulous, you will not be disappointed. The yacht is in excellent condition and the crew goes above and beyond anything I have experienced on other liveaboards. There was a good mix of diving and land tours. I don't think I will ever experience this level of service again, the Galapagos Sky has spoiled me.

A truely fabulous dive experience!

The crew were fantastic and really looked after you above and below the water. Their safety was excellent, which was reassuring considering how challenging the diving was. We saw loads of hammerheads, about six whale-sharks, an enormous tiger shark (up close and personal!), sea lions, dolphins.....the list goes on. The wildlife was awesome, but the diving is extremely challenging at times with absolutely incredible currents-onlyfor experienced, confident divers.

The best thing I've ever done

Whilst the price tag is steep, I came away feeling as though my week diving in the Galapagos provided excellent value for money. Varied diving environments and pelagics (whale sharks, hammerheads, Galapagos sharks, silkies, mantas, mola mola etc etc) in large numbers. I was somewhat apprehensive about the diving conditions in the Galapagos before my liveaboard but safety is paramount in dives from the Galapagos Sky. Solon and Christian knowledgeable guides who helped to provide excellent wildlife encounters. Quality of service on the boat high (for example when kitting up before dives etc).

Amazing experience

Our experience with Galapagos sky was amazing (even though we have very high standards!). The crew was perfect, always at the right place at the right time to help - pulling your wetsuit to get it off, giving you a hot chocolate as soon as you're back on board, pushing you in the hot shower when you're freezing cold, giving you a hot towel... All the organisation and the catering were perfectly orchestrated all along the way. Land excursions were nice additions to the diving itinerary. The cabin in the lower deck were functional and spacious enough without being too luxurious. In a week we saw a pregnant whale shark, loads of schooling hammerheads, Galapagos sharks, silky sharks, white tips, marble rays, marine iguanas, incredible schools of big eye jacks.... everything we were looking for was there! One thing we noticed is that almost half the divers had already been diving with the same boat and were coming back for more... it says it all. Thanks teams!!!

Fantastic adventure and a great crew, always there for you!

Obviously the diving and seeing hundreds of hammerheads, the whale shark experiences and most definitely the marine iguanas were my favorite!

Absolutely incredible

The Galapagos alone are amazing, and aboard the Galapagos Sky, everyone goes above and beyond to make sure you enjoy every bit of it. The crew were great, the dive guides very experienced, and overall made an incredibly enjoyable week. I appreciated the flexibility of the guides and diving, and their ability to change plans if something interesting came up (i.e. snorkeling with penguins instead of another dive with low visibility). As advertised, these dives are NOT for beginners. The guides treated us as responsible divers and made sure we were equally accountable for our own safety, which is greatly appreciated. Overall an absolutely incredible experience I'll be talking about for a long time!

Best liveaboard trip I've ever done

I can honestly say this was far and away the best liveaboard trip I've ever done. Every aspect of the the trip was superb. The boar was comfortable, cabins small but more than adequate, plenty of hot water for showers. Evening turn down service and room tidied several times a day (I almost ofund it embarrassing to have thrown my clothes on my bed before going for a dive and returning to find them all neatly folded on the bed) Crew were amazing, always helpful, especially on the dive deck (I've never had service like it) Food excellent, dietary needs catered to, soft drinks, beer and wine available. The diving was amazing but it is difficult diving - cold water, negative entries and some strong currents, particularly at Darwin's arch. Saw whale sharks of 4/7 dives at Darwin's Arch. Schools and schools of hammerheads. Saw a Molamola too which was pretty exciting. The fish life in general was prolific (good to see). A couple of land visits just finished off the trip nicely. One of the things I loved were that the crew were so passionate about the wildlife... particularly Fabricio (dive guide / ecologist / conservationist / font ofknowledge) who is a living legend and gave talks some evenings about the Galapagos geology / birds / flora and fauna / fish - he seemed to be able to answer any question we asked. The trip was probably the most expensive one I've done - but very much worth it. Only minor niggle - I had my own gear but a few people hired the gear on board - one because the airline lost hers - and several because they were travelling after the trip and didn't want to lug dive gear around tihem. There were a few issues with bcds and wetsuits not available in the right size. I'm travelling for 2 weeks after my trip but am glad I made the effort to take my gear which I'm used to, even if it does mean lugging around a huge dive bag!! cheers
