Scuba Diving at Darwin Island by Private Yacht, Galapagos

In the far northern reaches of the archipelago, Darwin Island remains completely off bounds. Nature is so precious that nobody is permitted onto the island. But that doesn’t mean you should not visit.

The island’s surrounding waters swarm with life. Hammerhead sharks patrol the shallows along with manta rays. Whales sharks regularly lope past. Other pelagic fish species make for special encounters. 

This island is difficult to reach. You can visit on a private yacht, to access dive sites where there will be nobody else in the water.
