The boat crew and guide made our experience that much more amazing

The fact that we had such fast paced itinerary to see as much as possible was the best thing of all. All the activities were fun and interesting, with the exception of paddle boarding which we were promised and the boat didn’t have them

Galapagos Adventure

The boat was well equipped, the food was good, and the crew was really nice. What really stood out is that we were THE ONLY dive boat at all our dive sites except for one day which we overlapped with one other boat (but we didn't see the divers under water). This was amazing!! We had some absolutely spectacular dives that weren't over-crowded. I would definitely recommend this trip...it was spectacular. Our dive guides were very knowledgeable and in addition to giving great dive briefings, we also had naturalist talks. For the last day we went ashore and were able to see the Galapagos turtles since we couldn't dive before flying out. One note: the boat's dive prep area is pretty small. It felt cramped for the first day of diving before I got to know the other divers. After the first day, the space was still small but everyone was comfortable with the close quarters because we knew each other. Our dive guides were Jorge and William and both were really great. The boat requires a minimum of 50 dives and I would recommend this. The dive guides assume you know what you're doing for the most part (they don't babysit you but are always there to help if needed) and it was nice to be diving with more experienced divers. Can't wait to go back!

Recommended for
The dives-the school of hammer head sharks (!), the penguin (!), the dive guides, the lack of other boats at the dive sites
