Additional Trip Description:
Diving Aboard the Beluga:
Diving is operated by a local Diving Operator. Divers may bring their necessary equipment such as mask, snorkels, fins, wet suits (a 1/4 inch wet suit is recommended), regulator and buoyancy compensator. Or one may chose to rent these locally. Divers must also bring their diving certification card and a recent medical certificate showing that they are fit to dive.

Restrictions:
One must be an experienced diver. Galapagos is not suitable for novice or infrequent divers due to strong currents, sea swells, surges, upwelling, large animals and difficult entry / exit to / from the dive boat. Most dives are drifts along the cliff faces, off-shore rocks and pinnacles. The new recompression chamber located in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island, increases the safety standard for divers.
