Information required

All daily diving tour programs are customized for the customer. Safety comes first and therefore we require the following information about each passenger’s diving experience in order to customize a program that will fit the customer’s skills and interests:

  1. Type of diving license (level and training agency)
  2. Current number of dives made
  3. Date of last dive
  4. Experience with drift and wall diving
  5. Experience diving in cold water and with thick wetsuits
  6. What would the customer like to see in the Galapagos?

With this information, Galasam can put together a suitable program and the customer is off to experience one of the most fantastic dive adventures.
