Tiburon Explorer Diving Cruise

If you’re after a Galapagos Islands diving experience that weds spectacular dive sites with luxurious accommodations, then the Tiburon Explorer diving yacht is the vessel to book.

Designed specifically for diving, the Tiburon Explorer’s state-of-the-art dive deck features everything you’ll need to make your dives hassle-free from start to finish. Accommodating only 16 passengers on board at any one time, this diving yacht provides plenty of space to get ready to take your plunge. For easy zodiac embarkation, a recessed stairway meets the waterline; and following each dive, you’ll have individual gear bins, air and nitrox filling stations, tank racks, and a separate freshwater rinse tank for underwater camera equipment and gear, as well as a large camera table with charging points.

However, the Tiburon Explorer is even more than a superb Galapagos diving platform – it’s also a luxurious home away from home. Her posh staterooms are provided with individualized climate control, en suite bathrooms, and twin beds that convert to a single queen-size bed. At the same time, dramatic picture windows allow stunning sea and island views to come flooding in, while chic decor with recessed accent lighting gives your room a real boutique-hotel feel.

When not dreaming about Whale sharks and your next dive, the ship is ideal for relaxing and socializing. For such re-energizing breaks, there aren't many places better than the Tiburon Explorer's sun deck, where its loungers are ideal for sun-worshippers, while shaded sofas permit cooler relaxing – as do the sun deck’s incredible alfresco bar and a welcoming Jacuzzi where you can share stories of legions of hammerheads sighted on your last dive. Still, you can duck inside to kick back in the ship’s saloon, where comfortable sofas and side tables are arranged in a sociable layout.

Brand new in 2020, the Tiburon Explorer liveaboard is the most luxurious live-aboard dive experience on the market. For an amazing once in a lifetime dive liveaboard in the Galapagos aboard the Tiburon Explorer, call us or book online to reserve your space.
