Dive Center Silberstein organizes unique underwater adventures in one of the last natural paradises on earth—the Galapagos, its dive sites ranking among the best worldwide. Beginner or advanced, any diver can discover this incredible underwater world with Dive Center Silberstein. Aside from daily dive excursions with two dives each, PADI dive courses are offered, from Open Water Diver to Dive Master. Professional bilingual guides authorized and certified by the Galapagos National Park lead the diver to sites where one is surrounded by local and pelagic, often large-sized animals.
The Center now operates with a predetermined itinerary exposing the great diversity of the Galapagos Marine Reserve. Each dive spot is unique: Santa Fe, visited Mondays, is with its mild currents ideal for beginners. Tuesdays the team heads toward Floreana and a visit to Champions, known for its coral-covered walls, barracudas, white-tipped reef sharks and sea turtles. Nearby is Enderby, a partially eroded volcano where one can see sea lions, and cleaning stations for sharks and turtles. Wednesdays and Sundays guests go to a famous site known for hammerheads and sea lions: Plazas and Gordon Rocks. Numerous crevices and caves are experienced here. Thursdays, it’s Mosquera and Daphne Minor, with many varieties large and small and fascinating underwater pinnacles. On Fridays, Seymour and the Channel of Itabaca offer four different dive sites—some with walls and caves, others sandy bottoms. Hammerheads, white-tipped and Galapagos sharks are common here. Saturday diving is along Bartolome and Cousin Rocks, famous for the largest sea horses in the world.
