Okay, we will not go nuts on describing the Galapagos, there are so many islands and so much to do… Go GOOGLE it, if you haven’t already! In particular, WE like the island of Santa Cruz. It has a great beach, a lovely atmosphere and it is the perfect island to chill on, during the days you are diving. We have to give the island one extra point, for our passionate dive center. They will bend their back to send you out on the best possible adventures... and not just for diving.

Overnatning

Your accommodation at Casa De Mathias, is half the wonder of this experience. Your super cozy private room/apartment is located in a lovely garden in a quiet family neighborhood. Chill in the hammocks, cook in your kitchen, or jump on your bike and head on over to your favorite restaurant.

Transport

Please seek adequate information from your travel agent regarding visa/permits and fees for the Galapagos islands!

Upon arrival, step outside Baltra airport and jump on one of the busses to take you down to the ferry (you will be charged a small fee), then you will be sailed over the strait (you will be charged a small fee)… THEN, you can either share a taxi (a full taxi is fairly priced) or jump on a local bus (cheaper). If you want to make your trip super easy, then you can arrange to be picked up by the trusted cap driver of the dive center. This can be arranged directly with the dive center. (e-mail is found on your voucher).

The fees for the taxi/local busses vary. Please talk to your travel agent, or check the internet before going. The fees are always in USD. Calculate 2 dollars for the airport bus, and another 2 dollars for the little boat taking you from Baltra to Santa Cruz Island, and you are covered!

The trip from the aiport to the dive center might sound like a hassle. But it is really not. Everybody are going in the same direction, just follow the people… And enjoy the view! Check the landing strip for the cool iguanas, and spot the pelicans on the boat crossing the strait. You have arrived!
