The Galapagos Islands, known worldwide, are the product of countless volcanic eruptions.

Although the islands are located in Ecuador, the temperature of the ocean varies greatly, between 7 and 28 degrees during the year.

The islands also suffer drastic climate changes and each season has its peculiarities. The period of time that goes from January to March are the months with greater temperature and humidity, being March the hottest month of the year. During this season the plants abound, and the sea temperature is ideal for diving. From July to September we find less rain and the islands are less humid, but cooler, the temperature of the water drops considerably, being the perfect season to observe the aquatic fauna, since the animals have preference for the icy waters.
