Hyperbaric Chamber


When you go SCUBA diving, especially surrounded by sharks, brilliantly colored fish and playful sea lions, safety might be the last thing on your mind.

But in the worst case scenario, it is nice to know that your dive operator is prepared in the event of a diving accident. You can take a SCUBA course at the Red Mangrove Dive Center, that has an on-staff doctor, the friendly Dr. Carola Amoroso. She can tell you about life in the Galapagos, and show you the on-site hyperbaric chamber.
