It is easy to rent all the equipment you will need while diving in the Galapagos from a licensed scuba diving provider. The equipment rental is usually part of your diving package if you are doing day dives, if you are doing a diving option on a cruise, or getting certified as a scuba diver. If you want to go on a live-a-board dive ship and you are not bringing your own equipment please let us know, because this will be a separate rental from the the live-a-board cruise.

Galapagos scuba diving is cold water diving with 7mm wetsuits.
