The Galapagos National Park authorities just announced this week further restrictions on SCUBA in the Galapagos Islands that are designed to promote better safety for divers and help protect the underwater ecosystem within the Galapagos Marine Reserve. Only authorized SCUBA shops or dive boats will be permitted to offer SCUBA. SCUBA shops already send dive boats to meet with some ships and yachts in order to offer occasional SCUBA. Most divers will not be affected by this move.
