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 9 cabins on board that are equipped with air conditioning, private facilities, and storage for personal belongings.

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.

    Galapagos Master

    Eine wunderschoene Reise mit kleinen Macken.
    Das Schiff ist leider etwas in die Jahre gekommen. Das wird vom guten Service des Bedienungspersonals teilweise ausgeglichen. Der fleissigste von allen ist der Salomon. Er war immer da und ueberall, er hat allen geholfen
    Galapagos ist ein wunderschoenes Land was wir auch sehr zu schaetzen wissen.
    Bei unseren Tauchgaenge bei Wolf und Darwin hatten wir riessiges Glueck! Was sehr gewoehnungsbeduerftig war und allen unangenehm aufgefallen ist war das Verhalten von dem Guide Ruli. Er hat kaum Ruecksicht auf uns genommen, unter und ueber Wasser. An einem Tag ist das Tauchen komplett augefallen. Uns wurde keine alternative angeboten. Eine schriftliche Bestaetigung wurde abgelehnt. Das muss sich in der Zukunft unbedingt aendern.
    Das Timing von dem Tagesablauf war sehr an die Beduerfisse und Ablaeufe der Manschaft angepasst aber nicht an uns.
    Nach anfaenglichen Schwierigkeiten mit der Nitrox Abrechnung haben wir uns am Schluss mit dem Kapitaen geeinigt. Fazit: Ein wunderschoener, erlebnisreicher Tauchurlaub mit kleinen Einschraenckungen.

      Great and easy liveaboard experience!

      The crew members are fantastic. They made sure that I never had to "work" on this vacation. The dives were great, but a bit cold. It would be nice if there are warmer gears for rent. The visibility wasn't great. These are to no fault of the dive company, of course. The food was great and having warm towels after every dive is a great idea! The toilets should be upgraded though - the time it takes to flush, the reliability that the flush would work, and the stench from the toilet was awful. Other than that, everything is great!
