Very good way to dive the Galapagos!

Pros: - Dive sites are absolutely amazing - The chef was fantastic, all the food was awesome, plus snack and beverage service. - We were a group of 7, and bc of the roomy sun deck the boat didn’t feel crowded at all. - Crew was so welcoming and helpful, great tenders, took our minds off of the little things and ran the boat smoothly. - Dive guide was attentive and passionate, had a lot of interesting information before, during, and after the dive. Cons: - Bring your own equipment. My rental mask fogged constantly despite burning/scrubbing, at one point my BCD had a leak and would not inflate during a dive, and the torch I was given died within minutes of use underwater. - Cabins smell musty and like toilet cleaner. AC control is all over the place so sometimes it’s very hot, others it’s super cold. Overall 4/5, worth the money and the small inconveniences to be able to dive at one of the coolest places in the world and see hammerhead sharks, rays, marine iguanas, sea lions, batfish, mola molas, etc.

I cannot imagine another dive experience coming close to this Galapagos experience!

Schools of hammerheads, swimming with dolphins, playing with sea lions, seeing sunfish, increasing skills as dive conditions were sometimes rough, night diving In caves entered thru lava tunnels

The amazing dives, the remoteness of our dive sites (no one else around), the dive masters’ knowledge of the diving conditions and the marine life.
