Get ready for an unforgettable diving experience on this SeaCrush liveaboard trip of August 14-23, 2025, in Malpelo! The island is located 500 km from the coast, at the confluence of several oceanic currents, and its steep waters go down to 3400 meters (11155 ft). Get ready for some of the biggest schools of hammerhead sharks you have ever seen, huge aggregations of silky sharks, some white tips sharks, eagle rays, and massive schools of fish. With only one liveaboard taking a maximum of 12 divers, diving Malpelo is one of the most exclusive experiences of the Pacific!
The liveaboard has been working for more than five years in the Malpelo Fauna and Flora Sanctuary. They aim at limiting their impact on the marine environment. It is one of the very few liveaboards to have a biological wastewater treatment plant onboard. They also decided to only take 12 divers on every trip. Finally, the liveaboard is also extremely fuel efficient for its size.
This liveaboard is for passionate and experienced divers. The strong currents attract pelagic species, making most sites quite challenging. A minimum of 50 logged dives, and an Advanced Open Water or a level 2 is required. To reduce the risk of decompression sickness and nitrogen narcosis, the usage of Nitrox is mandatory.
