The MV Humboldt Explorer yacht, part of the experienced Explorer Ventures fleet, offers year-round diving in the Galapagos Islands, including the world-famous Wolf and Darwin dive sites. There are 8 double or twin cabins on board, located on the upper or lower decks. All rooms are complete with private en-suite bathrooms, individually controlled AC and a flat-screen TV. The air-conditioned salon on the main deck features a TV, CD/DVD, video library and lounge area and is where all meals, which are a mix of American and local cuisines, will be served. The top deck offers partial shade, sun loungers and a hot tub to warm up in between dives.
The M/V Humboldt Explorer liveaboard offers incredible diving in the Galapagos year-round. The high season is from July to November when conditions are colder, currents are stronger and visibility is less, but this is the best chance to see whale sharks when diving at Darwin and Wolf. The low season is from December to June when the currents are not as strong and the visibility is clearer and the water is warmer. Hammerheads, eagle rays, sea lions, Galapagos sharks and silky sharks and huge schools of fish are generally present all year. The spacious dive deck is equipped with individual gear storage, a large camera table and charging station and a separate fresh water rinse tank for underwater camera equipment. Diving takes place from two large tenders to make getting to and from the dive sites as easy as possible, and nitrox is available for those certified.
