EPIC and Excellent Service

Dives were epic. The guides were very safe and thorough in the briefing. It was obvious that Jorge really loves ❤️ what he's doing and has a passion and enthusiasm for nature. Food was exceptional and Juanito the bar tender did a fantastic job serving food and making cocktails. Wine selection was dismal but simple cocktails were very nice. Cipriani

Adventure Week!!

What a great trip! Guides worked hard to give us the best diving possible which seems challenging in this El Niño year unfortunately. Nonetheless the hammerheads were plentiful, sharks galore, a whale shark and the shock of a lifetime - a tiger shark!!! Diving in the Galapagos is like no where else. The boat crew was fantastic and super helpful with equipment, tanks and ensuring everything was done safely.

Amazing liveaboard

One of the best liveaboards I have had. The boat is recently refitted, the staff is great and the guides know the dive sites very well. Food is of restaurant quality. The only thing that could be improved is rental gear - it is rather old.
