The Calipso Galapagos is a 35-meter yacht that was completely refurbished in 2019 with all new mechanical and electrical systems, and new common spaces and cabins. The dive deck is spacious and efficient, rebuilt to better accommodate divers and their gear. The sun deck features a jacuzzi and al fresco dining and lounge areas. The large salon and dining areas offer amazing panoramic views of the Galapagos islands on both sides of the ship.
All meals are served buffet-style. A Continental breakfast is provided prior to the first dive, then a full breakfast after that dive. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served buffet style for all you can eat. The chef features international and Ecuadorian dishes prepared with fresh local produce and seafood. Snack and hot beverages are offered after each dive, and fruit, candies and snacks are available all day. Wine, beer and liquor are available at the bar for an extra charge, and guests may bring their own bottles onboard. Please remember that there is no drinking and diving in Galapagos. Once you have a drink, you are done diving for the day.
The ship features ensuite double cabins can be converted to one bed. The cabins offer individual climate control, Apple TV, safety deposit box, storage, hair dryer, USB plugs, and windows. The Calipso has six double cabins on the upper deck and two double cabins on the main deck. Each cabin has two life jackets and an automatic fire sprinkler system for safety. WiFi is available onboard.
Calipso Galapagos has a spacious dive deck. Each stainless-steel diver station has storage underneath. There is a deep stainless camera rinse tank and a dry charging area with shelves to accommodate batteries. Most outlets are 110V, however, there are some 220V outlets. The large camera table has three levels. The dive deck also has a bathroom, a towel warming station and four fresh-water hot showers.
There are two sites where night dives are permitted. One is at Wolf during July – December and the other is at Cabo Marshall during January – June. There is also a small swim through at Wolf which is so much more beautiful with a torch.

Dive Conditions

Many Galapagos Dive sites, especially those in the northern Islands of Wolf and Darwin, are characterized by the presence of the following diving conditions: Currents, Surge, Thermoclines, Cold water.
The best time to dive in Galapagos highly depends on what you'd like to see. The diving season in Galapagos is generally divided into two categories: Whale Shark Season (June-November) and Manta Season (December-May) when it's slightly warmer. During the warmer Manta Season the schools of hammerheads are generally larger and giant manta rays may be found off Isabela island.
December - May: This is the warm season in the Galapagos with the highest water and air temps. Brief afternoon rain showers are common but expect the tropic sun to reappear after the rain. Water temperature is 70-86F (21-30C) with some cooler thermoclines at depth. The northern islands are generally colder. Visibility stays between 40-100 feet (12-33 meters).
June - November: This season is known as the guarua and is cooler with frequent mist and overcast days. Winds can create rougher seas at times. Water temperature is 60-75F (16-24C). While colder, the trade-off is the rich currents bringing nutrients into the islands, resulting in more abundant marine life. Visibility is slightly less as a result.
Galapagos diving conditions can be challenging. Currents are moderate to strong and may require you to grab hold of rocks below the surface so you don't drift away. Surges may create difficulties during your safety stops. The average visibility is 10 - 21m (30 - 70ft), but can be less.
June to December. However, September November is the best time to see the most wildlife, but the waters will be colder. The water for diving is cold all year-round, but even COLDER during this time of year, with thermoclines as well. Wetsuits of 7mm are recommended, as well as a hood and gloves.
Divers must follow their Dive Master and Galapagos Marine Reserve rules at all times. Divers must stick with the group and their Dive Master at all times, remain with their buddies, and ascend in pairs. Safety Stops are obligatory for all Galapagos dives.
