Blue Spirit Galapagos is a Tourist Superior class liveaboard diving yacht that runs trips, Wednesday to Wednesday, to the best spots in the Galapagos Islands, including Wolf and Darwin, to get up close to whale sharks, hammerheads, dolphins, mola mola, marine iguanas and sea lions. It was originally constructed in 2001 and remodelled for diving in the Spring of 2019.

The Blue Spirit liveaboard is 31.5m long, with a hull made of steel, and accommodates 16 guests in 10 roomy en-suite cabins featuring air-conditioning, ample storage, safety deposit boxes. All cabins on the upper deck have windows, meaning plenty of natural light.

The beautiful lounge and dining areas will be the perfect setting for a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner; informative natural history sessions and photo presentations will also be held. Meals are freshly prrepared and the Ecuadorian and international cuisine is served buffet-style. The lounge has a TV and DVD system, a computer for guest use, and a library of books and movies. There is also a bar for socialising after a enjoyable day of diving. The large sundeck is perfect for relaxing in-between dives and activities.

Diving activities are assisted by some of the 10 helpful crew members of the Blue Spirit, who will provide warm towels when you exit the water. The dive deck is spacious, with al-fresco hot showers; areas to clean the personal equipment, tables to clean underwater cameras, a recharging station; and individual gear bins. There is a membrane system for nitrox-certified divers, enabling you to spend more time underwater at the incredible Galapagos Islands.
