Plongez les îles Galápagos à bord du Nortada

The Nortada is a completely rebuilt fiberglass vessel serving as a dive boat in the Galapagos Islands. The Nortada offers 7 and 14 night itineraries, including dives in Wolf and Darwin for 8 people (maximum 12 people). Nortada is not a luxury ship. The price and service are comparable to other mid-range 16-person vessels in the Galapagos. The limited number of passengers on the Nortada promotes encounters with marine wildlife and improves the supervision of divers. This translates into a safer and more personalized diving experience: a signature product not available on any other boat.

All departures are made with two guides diving from two different small boats. This allows for better dives and more chances to see marine life. A supervision rate also increases the safer diving by accommodating different levels of experience, air consumption and interests. The Nortada is a great option for the organizer of small-group charters, making it easy for the agency to fill departures and offer guaranteed tailor-made departures all year round.


As with most diving cruises, the itinerary includes the western sites of the archipelago, but also the famous sites of the Wolf and Darwin Islands further north and the Fernandina and Isabela Islands further east.
The Punta Vicente Roca site is a cleaning station for the Mola Mola, is rich in various species and has probably the most coral of all the Galapagos. Cabo Marshall is a site where giant manta rays are almost certain to be seen. In Cabo Douglas, you dive with marine iguanas and penguins as they feed. The itinerary also includes a stop at Santa Cruz Island, the most populous island in the archipelago, to observe giant land turtles and soak up the ambience of Puerto Ayora town.
