Danubio Azul’s on-board facilities

The Danubio Azul offers a splendid open air dining and bar area in a covered spot of the main deck. Also, the dive deck is spacious, especially considering the small number of guests, and carries all you need. More details below in the diving section.

Moreover, you will find a partially shaded sundeck on the upper deck. It’s the best spot to snap some great pictures of the beautiful Galapagos Islands. Loungers and cozy mats are all over the place so you can enjoy the fresh air and the sun in comfort.

Scuba diving with the Danubio Azul

The scuba diving operation is well done on the Danubio Azul as a diving naturalist joins the cruise. Indeed, that’s amazing as you get to learn a lot more as you dive and discuss with the naturalist expert afterwards. The incredible biodiversity of the Galapagos Islands is both on land and below the sea surface, and it sure doesn’t miss to impress!
