The MV Galapagos Master is the most eco-friendly liveaboard in the Galapagos Islands. The yacht was originally built in 2004 and was rebuilt in 2014 by the Worldwide Dive and Sail team of yacht builders. 

Boat interior

The Galapagos Master has a spacious indoor lounge where divers can spend time after dives. Here passengers will find a cocktail bar, comfortable sitting area, and a TV. For those who prefer to stay outside and enjoy the gorgeous view, the boat has a dive deck with numerous lounge chairs. There is also a shaded area on the upper deck with cushioned lounge chairs. The Galapagos Master liveaboard can comfortably accommodate 16 passengers. There are 8 cabins on board that are equipped with air conditioning, private facilities, and storage for personal belongings.

Dive deck

The dive deck of the Galapagos Master is spacious enough for all divers to feel comfortable. It has plenty of storage facilities and special rinsing tanks for diving equipment and underwater cameras. Divers can also use shower heads for quick rinses after dives.

Safety

The Galapagos Master has all the necessary items for onboard safety, such as first-aid kits, life jackets, and firefighting equipment.

Suited for photographers

The Galapagos Master liveaboard is good for divers who enjoy underwater photography. The boat has special areas for working with photos and storage facilities to keep all the delicate accessories safe. There are also numerous charging points for your cameras.

Itineraries

The Galapagos Master sails for 7 or 10 nights. The Galapagos Islands are a huge protected marine reserve where you can encounter diverse marine creatures. At this destination, you can dive with hammerheads and such animals as Galapagos sharks, whale sharks, manta rays and other types of rays, and moray eels. Also, the mola mola, a very rare fish, can be seen here. This area is perfect for divers who like macro diving.

When to go

There are two major seasons for diving in the Galapagos Islands. The wet season lasts from January to June. The water temperature at this time is 20-25°C/68-77°F. July to December is the dry season, and you have a high chance to encounter sharks during this season. 

If you are looking for comfort and great diving, the Galapagos Master can be a perfect choice. The boat’s experienced team will give you personal service and share their knowledge of Galapagos diving with you.
