Comments  
Diving in the Galapagos was indeed the trip of a lifetime; the last dive
may be the single best dive of my life. I saw a school of rays, a whale
shark and 14 hammerheads--close enough to kiss. The only downside was the
consistently short fills, even after I complained. Having only twenty-eight
hundred lbs not only limited my bottom time in itself, but more air would
have given me a little more edge in the often strong currents. The thick
gloves I wore were a real help, the volcanic rock being quite sharp.
