Galapagos Shark Diving actively supports conservation in Galapagos!

Dive with THE whale shark expert Jonathan R. Grenn! Dive with a Purpose - combine an incredible dive experience with helping research & conservation of whale sharks!

WHY dive in the GALAPAGOS?

Once you dive Galapagos your life and diving will NEVER be the same!

  • The Galapagos Islands are a magical place. They offer diving with hammerhead, Galapagos & Silky sharks, Whale Sharks, turtles, Molas, Marine Iguanas, Eagle rays, dolphins, Jacks, Tuna, Red-lipped batfish and so much unique marine species.
  • Occasionally we also find Orcas, Tiger Sharks, Humpback whales and other less frequently seen marine animals!

WHY dive with US? How do we make the DIFFERENCE?

  • You support  'Galapagos Whale Shark Project' directly with a donation which is included in the price! For your support you will get a underwater video of your individual dive expedition!
  • We give presentations about a variety of Galapagos topics, science and conservation of Whale Sharks & the Galapagos Whale Shark Project!
  • We will have maximum of 14 passengers instead of 16 on board the vessel.
  • You will dive with members of the research project GWSP Jonathan Green & Jenny Waack. So you will get details about the project and a few stories behind the scence of the filming of 'BBC Blue Planet II' directly from the project leader Jonathan.
  • Both are dive masters! So you will have 4 dive masters in total - for 7 guests 2 dive masters!
  • YOU can help with citizen science adding to the knowledge and global data bases.
  • Interested in underwater photography? Jonathan is an award winning photographer, who has led many photography workshops in Galapagos and around the world.
