How are Safety Stops / Decompression performed in the Galapagos?

Safety stops are highly recommended in every dive. Stressing conditions, cold water and strenuous situations create higher potential of gas absorption. Safety stops are usually performed “in the blue” while drifting with the current.

Decompression diving is mainly undeveloped in the Galapagos Islands. Decompression stops are performed “in the blue” with the aid of diver surface marking buoys to help panga drivers follow the divers along their hangs.

 The Tip Top dive and Training facility offers several special gas mixtures for decompression diving in the Galapagos Islands.
