When Do You Want To Go?
Calling all seasoned dive enthusiasts! If you wish to explore subterranean wonders surrounding the Galápagos Islands, Nortada dive ship is perfect for you. With more dives than any other Galápagos cruise, 7 and 14-night itineraries and a local fisherman as the ship’s owner, you will be treated to great knowledge and understanding of the region, so you can gain the most from your dives. This first-class intimate cruise ship caters predominantly to experienced divers, celebrities and film crews who desire privacy and wish to capture the best underwater footage. The ship offers unrivalled support for camera crews, and as the Nortada only caters to 8 passengers you can charter it solely for yourselves. All cruises depart from Baltra, with a short stop at Puerto Ayora - the largest town in the archipelago. Time on-shore allows you to stock up on supplies from local dive shops before continuing to Carrion Point on Santa Cruz for your first real dive. Once you reach your destination you are plunged into the deep blue alongside inquisitive hammerhead sharks, white tip reef sharks and magnificent manta rays. If this sounds impressive, you haven’t seen anything yet, for the diving highlights of Galápagos are Darwin and Wolf Islands. You will spend three days in these locations, where marine life comes to you in this awe-inspiring underwater amphitheatre - you just need to be camera ready! Expect to see hammerheads, Galápagos sharks, whale sharks and dolphins during these dives. That’s not all. Before you disembark you can also snorkel and dive with sea lions, turtles and mobula rays at Cape Marshall just off Isla Isabela!
On-board Nortada, all meals, snacks, tea, coffee and soft drinks are included in your itinerary price. Public areas are light and airy with a dedicated dive deck and sun deck where you can relax under the stars, swapping stories and comparing footage from your underwater adventures.
Accommodation on the Nortada is comfortable, sleeping 8 guests within 4 cabins on the lower deck. Each cabin is air conditioned for your comfort and features storage lockers for your equipment.
