Dive with playful Sea Lions, travel to the famous Darwin and Wolf for thrilling diving to see Hammerhead Sharks, Whale Sharks, and clouds of tuna.

Galapagos is one of the most exciting destinations in the world. The scenic view of the Darwin Arch is as picturesque as you can imagine.

In 2016, Ecuador created a marine sanctuary in the area of Darwin and Wolf that includes 15,000 square miles as off limits to all fishing to conserve the sharks that congregate there and the ecosystem on which they rely. 32% of the waters around the Galapagos islands will now be protected from fishing.

Our goal is to provide you with the ultimate Galapagos Islands liveaboard scuba diving experience.

The GALAPAGOS AGGRESSOR® offers a brand new itinerary in compliance with the Galapagos National Park regulations which requires companies with permits to follow the exact itinerary below. A maximum of four dives will be offered daily; two in the morning and two in the afternoon. In addition, two night dives and two land excursions per week will be offered.
