    The Galapagos are a unique experience! Explore Galapagos, Galapagos in December

    Two points for improvement (why do you only ask for the BEST things and not for improvements?): First At least 1/3 of the divers had very, very limited diving experience. One of the instructors had to dedicate all his time to 5 divers to guarantee at least some safety. At the beginning this lead to a "competition" between the divers to get in the experienced group, which did not help building a good athmosphere. After a while it was decided that the groups could not be equal in number anymore and the experienced divers could go together in one group (which was too many, but better than dive with the beginners). In the application 50 dives was requested as minimum. I strongly recommend to strictly commit to this minimum! Galapagos is not a diving site for beginners! Second: The itinerary I received contains a few mistakes: 30 dives is not correct (it is a little more than half of it), there was only 1 night dive, there was no visit to The Twins nor Scalesia Forest (which I did not go to before the diving, because I thought we would do it anyway),

    Amazing diving, great crew, but a few too many of the small details overlooked Explore Galapagos, Galapagos in December

    The trip was great, you will enjoy it if you go, and the diving is world class. Everything after that is just the small details that you expect when you pay for a luxury livaboard, but in this case was missing. The boat has a one guide to 8 diver policy, which is fine for the dives at Wolf and Darwin, but created some problems on other dives on the trip. Also, one of my personal annoyances, the guides carry a camera for most of the dives, taking video which they will then try to sell you later on. There are very few instances where I think guide should have a camera and split focus on taking videos and guiding, but this is especially true with such a high guide to diver ratio. The crew was all very helpful, there just always seemed to be one person short to make sure everything was getting done. We also had to choose between diving with the marine iguanas and canceling a dive, or getting all the scheduled dives and potentially not seeing one. This is something that should be factored more in the schedule, so we do not have to make these types of decisions. If you are thinking of going to the Galapagos you need to do a livaboard to see the best sites, but the park mandates schedules, so you get a pretty similar schedule no matter what boat you take. I would do this trip again with the Aggressor, but for the diving, not for the value that I thought I was getting from this boat.

    This trip was awesome. Explore Galapagos, Galapagos in February

    Watching the awesome pelagic schools at Darwin and Wolf Islands; diving with sea lions, marine iguanas, massive schools of fish (many varieties); viewing a great variety of rays, in abundant quantities; seeing a Mola-Mola twice! at its cleaning station; seeing penguins, flightless cormorants, blue-footed boobies, large pelicans, various frigates; seeing THREE Mola-Mola's swimming by our boat; seeing several manta rays jumping completely out of the water!; having sea lions "buzz" us several times playfully and acrobatically swimming around when we least expect it.

    1) Outstanding dive experience with extremely abundant and diverse marine and animal life; 2) outstanding dive masters and support crew; 3) outstanding service crew.

    Our family had a great time on this trip. Abundant big sea life and great guiding made for an unforgettable experience. Walter and Reuben kept the divers safe. Food was great. The A/C in out room cut out half way through the week so a back up fan would have been nice. Minor issue. So much fun.

    We see it all: whale shark, hammerhead shark, Galapagos shark.....manta ray, eagle ray, fur seal.... marine iguanas.... After diving take care with hot water and towels Everything perfect on the boat except the cabine Number 3 ... with very bad smell and a lot of noises (engine and electricity generator...) so impossible to sleep more than 3/4 hours a night!!! Too bad!
