Galapagos Dive Trip - Application

Dive participants are required to complete, date and sign a Dive Trip Application. Failure to do so may result in your disqualification from the trip and your deposit being forfeited. We have had to enact strong requirements due to safety issues related to the seriousness of diving in the Galapagos and because a number of past dive participants failed to either submit or meet our requirements. Our goal is to insure each diver’s experience is as safe as possible and to place each diver on a departure appropriate to their level of skill and conditioning.
