What type of diving is there in the Galapagos? Is it mainly Drift Diving?
Due to the currents throughout the archipelago dives usually follow the flow of the current. Most of the diving in the Galapagos is drift diving. Usually divers will descend in a rapid but controlled manner and hold on to an insensitive feature on the bottom. Once in the bottom, rocks and other natural features serve as good hiding places from the current. There is where a lot of the wildlife as hides so it’s a natural place for observing it. Once ready to move, just think ahead of where you are going, work with the current and find another anchor point or hideaway.
