Darwin’s Discoveries and Daring Encounters Await
The isolated archipelago of the Galápagos Islands in the Pacific ocean off the coast of Ecuador is renowned for its unique flora and fauna—which spawned Darwin’s theory of evolution. These stunningly beautiful islands also offer some of the most thrilling dives on the planet. The remote Wolf and Darwin islands are where skilled divers go to encounter large schools of hammerhead sharks, giant manta rays, and from June-November, whale sharks. The only access to Wolf and Darwin is via live-aboard yachts, and only a few have permits to visit these iconic sites, so booking early is a must. Itineraries also include diving in and around Santa Cruz island, as well as land tours to bring you a complete Galápagos experience. 7-night live-aboard trips start at $3,295 per person in a double room (airfare not included). Caradonna Dive Adventures is the adventure travel specialist, providing a wide selection of packages for travelers in search of high-caliber experiences around the world.
