Galápagos is most diver's holy grail, especially for us from the other side of the world. For me it was my dream destination since I started diving. It wasn't hard to reach if I have the money and time. It will easily cost us US$12k to make a trip there and back. I finally made it to this remote islands in 2011 during my Round The World trip on budget.

At Puerto Ayora, there are plenty of dive shops but the best one are fully book and the small one are not going out. I have decided to make just day trips because I wanted to see both the land and underwater and one can't do that on a single LOB. The LOB are licensed either on diving or land trip, a strict rule apply by the Galápagos National Park.
