When is the best time to dive in Galapagos?

There is good diving in Galapagos all year round, but June to December is usually felt to be the best time. The water temperature is coldest between September and November with thermoclines, although this also tends to coincide with the arrival of some of the bigger species. Seas can also be at their choppiest during this period.

If you do come during the colder part of the year then you will certainly want to consider a 7mm wetsuit, dive hood, gloves and booties!
