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!!

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).
