Amazing boat and crew!

The highlights of my trip had to be the wildlife that we saw. We had a great week with schooling hammerheads, mola mola, dolphins, fur seals and marine iguanas. The crew feed us too well and took great care of everyone. This is a great boat with a wonderful staff. This trip was worth every penny spent.

Beyond expectations, my best liveaboard in 7 years!!!

SUPERB liveaboard!!! March 2019. The best i've been on in the last 7 years! Fantastic crew, very warm, smiling and laughing. Crew is always making sure everything is perfect for everyone! So helpful and kind. Food is simply AMAZING, it was truly outstanding - again the best i've ever seen on a liveaboard, everyone was delighted! The chefs were great also in accommodating my dietary needs, working extra to prepare special dishes :) I noticed that the crew paid attention to details, and took time to make the experience impeccable and fun. Very warm atmosphere on the boat, within the crew members, as well as the divers. Such a fun time with everyone! Dive masters were very sweet and kind, taking time to give extra help whenever needed. They are visibly passionate about diving, as well as taking time to talk about the Galapagos islands at length, including the ecology of the area, currents, marine life, wildlife found on land as well. Altogether delightful! makes for a trip of a lifetime!!!
