Itinerary

D1-Baltra
Tuesday: Arrival at Baltra Airport and NE Baltra (1 dive)

AM-Baltra Airport: Upon arrival at Seymour Ecological Airport, your guide will meet you at the airport, assist you with the luggage, and take you on a short bus ride. Then you will get on board the Aqua yacht, where the crew and captain will greet all passengers. Your cabin will be assigned and then you can check any rented diving gear. Afterwards, the guide will begin the briefing about safety and activity details, as well as the afternoon’s dive. Finally, you will enjoy your first lunch on board. 


PM-North East Baltra: This is the perfect spot to start your adventure with moderate currents. This dive site is for adventurous divers looking to see fascinating lava and rock formations, as well as marine species. At a depth of about 20m/60 ft, we might see white-tip reef sharks, pelagic sharks, reef sharks, rays, and turtles. Additionally, sea lions will be your companionship upon entry and on safety stops. Occasionally, hammerhead sharks can be spotted swimming nearby.
