SAFETY

aqua safety galapagos

Greater safety on board

Here at Galapagos, we pride ourselves on our diving safety record. That is why all our staff has been trained in primary first aid and secondary care, and no expense has been spared in relevant safety departments. We have a fully stocked first aid kit on board, as well as emergency oxygen and a trauma kit.

Every effort has been made to attain high-security standards. On the bridge, we have an EPIRB, marine rescue GPS to locate our divers, long-range radio phone (for use in emergencies only), FM and SW Radio, and VHF and SSB radio. There are also fire detectors throughout the boat and a large number of fire extinguishers. All of our staff are trained by a fire control specialist in the unlikely event of an outbreak. There is also an adequate number of personal flotation devices and lifebuoys.
