The Galapagos Islands are on many scuba diver's and non-diver's bucket lists. This region is a part of the Atlas of Marine Protection due to it's incredible marine biodiversity. This includes being one of the best places in the world to see hammerhead sharks.

The Islands of the Galapagos were of course made famous by Charles Darwin’s exploration. This gives them a huge historical background. But in particular in relation to the law of evolution.

However, Darwin only explored the islands themselves, but he didn't explore the underwater world of the Galapagos Islands.

If you are planning your diving holiday to the Galapagos Islands and you're single, this makes things slightly more difficult as a solo diver.

But as a solo traveller and single diver and without a dive buddy, you will soon discover that a liveaboard is the best option.

If you're travelling alone and you're looking to explore the islands of Galapagos or the underwater world of the Galapagos Islands, a liveaboard boat with single, twin or triple cabins is the way to go.

Liveaboard single cabin all Galapagos - the options as a solo diver or single traveller

I've reviewed a number of Galapagos liveaboard boats in this article. Included in this list are both luxury liveaboards and cheaper liveaboards. These are split, as follows:

  • Galapagos liveaboards with single cabins.
  • Galapagos liveaboards with single beds in shared rooms - either twin or triple.

You may prefer to have your own private cabin with a single bed. But you may alternatively prefer to share with another solo diver or single traveller in a room with more than one single bed.

Let's take a look at the Galapagos dive and non-dive liveaboards available in both scenarios:
