Darwins arch

Your underwater adventures in the Galapagos with Motor City Scuba will encompass everything from sharks to nudibranchs, and more. The islands are best known for amazing shark diving around Wolf and Darwin Islands. These small and remote islands are best reached by liveaboard vessels for divers. Your diving experience here will generally include Galapagos sharks, silky sharks and lots of schooling hammerheads being cleaned by king angelfish. Seeing marine turtles, schools of tuna, eagle rays, and sea lions is very common and seeing a whale shark is very possible from June through November. All the islands you travel to are amazing sites for underwater photography.

Macro photographers will have their fill of barnacle blennies, coral hawk fish, and many others. An abundance of rays are at many of the dive sites (including spotted rays, marble rays, golden rays and stingrays) along with sea lions, sea turtles, schools of grunts and snappers. The variety of life in these water is unlike any other place, with thick schools of the native brown striped salema, snappers, groupers, Chevron barracuda and huge sea turtles.


There are also many unique things to view on land. Of course, a trip to the Galapagos would not be complete without taking time to watch their most famous inhabitants - the giant tortoises and the Galapagos penguins!


The state-of-the-art Tiburon Explorer, debuting in April 2020, accommodates 16 passengers in 9 air-conditioned staterooms. All staterooms are located on the main and lower decks and have windows to maximize views of the renowned Pacific Ocean and Galapagos Archipelago. In addition, each stateroom has twin beds that can be converted to comfortable queen beds for couples, and include private bath and shower facilities, dressers, and closets. When not dreaming about whale sharks and their next dive, guests can enjoy the air-conditioned salon on the main deck, furnished with dining tables and TV/lounge area. Sunning and viewing areas on the top deck offer ample seating and a hot tub where you can regale stories of hammerheads from your day. 


 This contemporary liveaboard is equipped with all amenities avid divers could need. The dive deck is expansive and outfitted with individual gear bins, air, and nitrox filling stations, tank racks, and a separate fresh water rinse tank for underwater camera equipment. Photographers and videographers will also be delighted with the dedicated camera table and recharging stations. Tiburon Explorer sets a high standard for dive safety and all dives are conducted from two large pangas (tenders), easily boarded from the deck.
