Tons of wildlife in natural habitat

We were excited to obtain this trip at a very reasonable price. The Galaxy Diver is not a new ship, but has been refurbished. We did the naturalist trip. We really enjoyed the itinerary, and the massive amount of wildlife that we saw. The daily land and snorkeling activities kept us very busy and were highly enjoyable. The food was excellent, and the crew very friendly. We had a lower room which was comfortable. The small group and lack of other tourists was a huge plus. The only reasons for the four star and not a five star is because there was no WIFI or kayaks on board as promised. We did have a slight sewer odor in our room the last two days.

The West Galapagos itinerary was excellent

The West Galapagos itinerary was excellent, with something new to see every day. The food surpassed all expectations – from seafood to desserts. The ceviche demonstration / explanation was a nice touch. Amenities worked well (hot water, etc), the main deck cabin was very comfortable and the crew was excellent, except the guide. The captain did an excellent job of navigating the waves at night. However, Galaxy Diver was guilty of mis-advertising. There was no on-board internet whatsoever for 7 days, although it was stated as included on the confirmation voucher. It would have been helpful to know about the lack of wi-fi in advance (wifi options in Puerto Villamil / Puerto Ayora are dismal).
