Can I go shore diving on my own in Galapagos?

No. Diving is strictly regulated by the Galapagos National Park and is allowed only in specifically defined areas of the Galapagos Marine Reserve. As part of the regulation, divers must be accompanied by a certified Galapagos Marine Reserve Dive Master Guide. All of the diving happens in off-shore areas and a properly licensed boat is needed at all times.
