If you are interested in visiting the Galapagos islands for a week and doing a few dives but also visiting the overland attractions then a 'Trekking and Diving' package might suit you perfectly. This package requires a minimum of 2 people. There are 2 diving days departing from Puerto Ayora on a day trip boat and giving you a taste of some the best central Galapagos dive sites may include local sites like Cousin's Rock, Mosquera Island, North Seymour, Gordon's Rock and Bartolome Island.

Overland tour attractions include the Charles Darwin Station, Tortuga Bay in Puerto Ayora and Flamingo Lagoon on the island of Isabela. On the island of Isabela you will visit the Sierra Negra volcano and Volcan Chico before swimming at the delightful Concha Perla. The trekking is reasonably challenging but not only for the super-fit.

From the moment you arrive in Baltra Airport you will be picked up and all your land and sea transfers will be taken care of until it is time for you to fly back to the mainland.
