Scuba Iguana - Galapagos Islands


Scuba 		Iguana

"We want you to remember GALÁPAGOS for the rest of your life"



Enjoy the marvels of the sea from "under". Scuba Iguana will make it possible for you and offers safety, quality and more than 30 years of experience in the islands.

Dive with reef fish, rays, schooling fish, and maybe even marine iguanas. Booby birds, terns, and other birds perch on the rocks of the cliff overhead. After the first dive the boat remains in sheltered water for rest or snorkeling.


ONE DAY DIVE


Academy Bay.

At Santa Cruz Island.

This is the bay of Puerto Ayora at Santa Cruz Island, offering 5 dive sites within 10 or 20 minutes by boat from our Hotel. Three of the sites are generally cawith little current; ideal for students or novices. At the other two sites the dives could be a little more complicated if there is current, so they are suitable for intermediate or expert divers. It is possible to see reef fish, sea lions, sting rays, golden rays, eagle rays, invertebrates, morays, garden eels, turtles, marine iguanas, and white tip reef sharks.

Trip duration 4-5 hours.


SANTA FE ISLAND


This island is about an hour away from the hotel, and offers 4 dive sites. Generally the waters are clear and the currents mild, so they are ideal for novices. At the same time, the animals and topography make them interesting for intermediates and experts. We can see reef fish; sting and eagle rays, garden eels, turtles, sea lion colony, invertebrates, morays, pelagic fish, maybe white tip reef sharks or hammerheads.

Trip duration 7-8 hours.


FLOREANA ISLAND
Floreana is about 90 minutes south from our dive base. The 9 dive sites usually have calm water but when we find strong current at one we can quickly move to another. This makes Floreana ideal for all levels of divers. You may see coral heads, endemic black coral, reef fish; sting and eagle rays, turtles, sea lion colony, barracudas, pelagic fish, white tip reef sharks, galápagos sharks, hammerhead sharks, sea horses, morays, garden eels, invertebrates.

Trip duration 8 - 9 hours.


NORTH SEYMOUR ISLAND
This island is about 90 minutes north of our dive base. There are 5 dive sites suitable for all levels of divers, although sometimes the currents can be strong. We can see reef fish; sting and eagle rays, a large garden eel colony, turtles, invertebrates, sea lion colony, morays, pelagic fish, and usually white tip reef sharks and hammerheads. Occasionally the galápagos sharks.

Trip duration 8 - 9 hours.


COUSINS ROCK
An islet with a wall dropping from the surface into the deeps, full of spectacular endemic young black corals, and a big area of sloping rock plates known as a “Planchonal”. Cousins is about one hour north from Santa Cruz near Bartolomé Island and two hours from our base. There can be strong currents. You may see reef fishes, rays, marine turtles, sea horses, morays, pelagic fishes and usually hammerheads sharks

Trip duration 8 - 9 hours


NAMELESS ISLAND
This is an isolated offshore “sugarloaf” with vertical walls all around. The distance from our home port is about one hour. The main dive site is a shelf of boulders at about 60 feet. We usually see many galápagos sharks here, some schools of pelagic fish, and multicolored sponges on the rock wall. Currents and surge are the controlling factors at Nameless Island.

Trip Duration 7 - 8 hours.


GORDON ROCKS
This rock formation is a world famous dive site close to Plazas Islands, about one hour from our base. There are 4 dive sites in the area, but only the two at Plazas are for novices. The other two sites are for intermediates and experts because there can be strong currents and surge. The Gordon Rocks dive sites are mostly walls with a deep bottom. Reef fish, large pelagic fish; golden, sting and eagle rays, turtles, sea lion colony, endemic galapágos fur seals, morays, invertebrates; white tip and galápagos sharks. Hammerhead sharks are the main attraction, often appearing in large schools.

Trip Duration 7-8 hours.
