What You Can Expect:

The objective of the check dive is to sort out weight requirements and test equipment. A welcome cocktail and dinner will be served on board. Nortada will depart at midnight with destination Punta Carrión.

Saturday – Day 2: Punta Carrión / Baltra / Cousin Rock

Usually starting at 6 am, one morning dive is done at Punta Carrión or the north-eastern portion of Baltra Island. First dive is followed by breakfast while Nortada refuels in Baltra. After refueling, two hour navigation will take you to Cousin Rock for one or two dives. Number of dives depends on the day’s schedule. Punta Carrión and Baltra N/E are considered “warm up” dives where dive procedures and equipment are tested and enforced or adapted. Depending on the conditions, encounters with white-tip reef sharks, Mola-Mola, sea horses and several types of reef fish are possible. Cousin Rock is one of the most popular dive sites in the central islands. The islet is formed by volcanic tuff. Cousins and other dive sites in the area are characterized for their eroded surfaces covered by soft corals and gorgonians. Highlights include nudibranchs, frogfish, seahorses, sea lions, eagle rays and schooling fish.

Sunday – Day 3: Wolf Island

Up to 4 dives during the day at Punta Shark Bay, El Derrumbe, Islote La Ventana y La Banana. Wolf Island is located at North West of the Archipelago. Up to 4 dives are done on this day. Wolf is known as “The Meca of sharks”. Divers are usually able to swim alongside several species of sharks, dolphins, turtles, eagle rays and colorful schools of fishes. Wolf also offers an opportunity to explore the erosion underwater caverns and tunnels. Although 40 meter deep, the Anchorage is a great place to watch the Galapagos red-lipped batfish and a popular site for night diving. Meals are scheduled around diving, usually with one dive before breakfast and one dive after lunch. The better part of the night is spent in the anchorage and transit to Darwin starts in the early AM of day 4

Monday – Day 4: Darwin Island

Up to 4 dives during the day; it is located at North West of the Archipelago. Up to 4 dives are done on this day. Darwin is considered as one of the best places to dive over the world.

Schooling hammer head sharks and whale sharks are the highlights of dives at Darwin’s Arch. Meals are scheduled around diving, usually with one dive before breakfast and
one dive after lunch. Transit back to Wolf and dinner. Navigation is roughly 20 nautical miles / 2 hours.

What To Expect Onboard:

Originally built in France by Guy Couach, Nortada is a fully rebuilt fiberglass vessel serving as a dive live-aboard in the Galapagos Islands. Nortada offers 7 and 14 night itineraries to Wolf and Darwin for 8 guests. Nortada is not a luxury vessel. Price and service are comparable to other mid-range 16 people live-aboard vessels in Galapagos. However, Nortada’s eight guest arrangement leverages encounters with marine wild life and enhances diver supervision. This renders in a safer, more personalized dive experience: a signature product unavailable from any other boat.

All full FIT departures are run with two dive masters diving from two tenders. This renders in better dives and more chances to see even the most elusive marine wildlife. An increased
supervision ratio also makes diving safer by accommodating different levels of experience, air
consumption and interests. Nortada constitutes a great option for running charters in small groups; allows retailers to fill departures easily and enables travel agencies to offer selected guaranteed FIT departures all year round. Nortada also supports specialized activities such as rebreather and technical diving, private super yacht expeditions, enhanced privacy needs and other interest oriented departures.
