Galapagos diving can be challenging. Currents can be strong and more unpredictable than you may be used to, especially July – December when we see more large animals in the area.
- For your safety some of our dive sites, like Gordon Rocks, are open to more experienced divers only. Please plan your trip with this in mind – you can find more information on dive sites and experience levels here [link to Dive Sites page].
- If you have never dived before and would like to experience the Galapagos underwater world, it’s still possible, safe and fun – just a little different. See our ‘Discover Scuba Diving’ page for more information.
July to December water temperatures are cooler here, from 65°F – 75°F (18°C- 23°C) with occasional thermoclines from xx°F – xx°F (16°C- 18°C). We provide you with 5mm or 7mm wetsuits as well as hoods and also have some spare layers. However, if you usually feel the cold faster and more fiercely than others, you may want to bring an extra layer of your own.
