Fabuloso; best diving of my life with a crew who loved being there too.

The marine life without a doubt and the shear beauty all around in a very place on this earth, the dive masters and panga drivers who took great care of us. As well as the rest of the crew; hot towels after dives, rooms, food, party at the equator and a great crew who were all loved their jobs and were like family. I just got back a week ago ( cold season ) already thinking about returning in the warm season. Thank you Galaxy Dive Crew for an amazing life time memory I'm still smiling about.

The diving was incredible in the Galápagos. Whale sharks, hammerheads, white tip, black tip, Galapagos sharks, silky sharks, turtles, seahorses, rays and much more! The crew was wonderful and very helpful. They put on a little show for us at one point which was so fun. I don’t want to give the details as I want it to be a surprise for future guests. It was an unforgettable experience and I would totally recommend it.

Amazing liveaboard experience

The one week with Galaxy Diver was definitely my best liveaboard experience so far. Besides seeing all the exciting marine animals, the crew is very professional. For instance, no matter how much we drifted away, when we went up to surface, our boat is always within a few meters away. This have made all divers feeling safe in a difficult condition like Galapagos. They are also very friendly and genuine, and they did everything to make our trip a more memorable one, like the little ceremony when we passed the equator and chef's live show of making local dishes and drinks.

Diving trip galapagos

Great trip to Galapagos. The vessel has been reformed recently. The rooms are a bit small but everything clean and ok. Another common areas outside, like an upper deck, it would be great but the vessel in general was very good. Food, crew and diving guides were fantastic. Those guys really do their job in a good way!!

Unglaublich tolle Tauchsafari

Wir haben Wahlhaie gesehen, sind mit Seelöwen getaucht und haben Iguanas beim Fressen beobachtet. Auf den Tauchausflügen haben uns Delfine begleitet. Es war eine wahnsinnig tolle Erfahrung und im Juni die beste Reisezeit.
