After enjoying the amazing dive you will be going back to the boat to have lunch and start the journey back to Itabaca canal and Puerto Ayora after.
The weather in the islands is generally warm but there are some months where we have some rain, so it will be a good idea to bring a rain jacket. Of course don’t forget your sunscreen, swimsuits, sunglasses, comfortable shoes and of course a camera.
