If you’re into diving, you probably want to know which is the best Galapagos cruise for scuba diving? After all, at a bucket list destination, you don’t want to take a chance. Luckily, with the Calipso Galapagos Yacht, you know you’ve found a good option. In fact, unusually for the archipelago, the Calipso is a great choice whether you want a diving liveaboard or a naturalist cruise: she’s authorized for both. Recently refurbished from her engines to her social areas and cabins, the ship offers a comfortable lounge and dining area with modern, nautically-themed design in light woodwork with blue accents. And as another special feature for cruise ship diving in Galapagos, she is the only liveaboard with Wi-Fi, which is included in the package, making it easier for you to tell all of your friends and family at home about the amazing wildlife you’ve seen.
Guests on naturalist cruises will take advantage of the recently-inaugurated dive deck on their snorkeling outings, while SCUBA fans will make the most of the new facilities that include Nitrox, camera table, rinse tanks, hot showers and a bathroom. Naturalist itineraries stop at top visitor sites, making it easy to get up-close views of unique Galapagos islands bird species, while divers on all itineraries will thrill at the chance to stop at the Darwin and Wolf marine visitor sites, with their significant populations of sharks and other unusual species. And everyone will be happy when they return to the sundeck for a dip in the jacuzzi or some delicious al fresco dining.
After a long day of adventure, guests will make the most of 10 newly refurbished cabins (6 doubles on the upper deck, 2 doubles on the main deck and 2 singles on the lower deck), each with windows to enjoy the stunning Galapagos views, hot showers and individually-controlled air conditioning.
