All about the Humboldt Explorer.

Constructed in 2009, this purpose-built diving boat is very spacious and provides the comfortable environment necessary for those lucky enough to be diving the challenging but unforgettable waters of the Galapagos Islands. Up to 16 guests can be accommodated on these Galapagos diving cruises in twin or double bed standard cabins, featuring air-conditioning, in-cabin audio-visual entertainment and hot water, en-suite facilities. All cabins have windows meaning plenty of natural light.

Common areas follow the roomy, high quality cruise with an elegant diving area and saloon, which is air-conditioned and tastefully furnished. Guests tend to socialize here and enjoy the TV, DVD and music system and library of books. For added luxury, you can even relax in the Jacuzzi on the sun deck. A spacious dive deck with large camera table, nitrox and multiple safety devices are all further evidence of how diver-friendly the Humboldt Explorer truly is.

 Key Features

  • The dive deck is equipped with individual gear bins, large camera table, recharging station, air and nitrox filling stations, tank racks, and a separate fresh water rinse tank for underwater camera equipment.
  • Diving operations are conducted from two large pangas (tenders), easily boarded from the dive deck.
  • The Humboldt Explorer is also equipped with a satellite telephone for emergency calls worldwide.
