The check out dive sucks! 60 degress with 10 ft vis at the best. No one
even checked us out to see if we could dive or not. I felt that was a verey
poor welcome the Galapagos diving exsperiance. The next two dives where
just as cold with a little better vis and more to see however I did a land
tour instead of diving. That in it self said alot for a hard core big
critter guy. I dove Coco in 1999 and I think I know what I should have seen
in the Galopags however I am dis heartend to see less hammers less jacks
and less everthing at the Galapegos. I did not exspect to find a small city
on any of the islands much less a small armada of boats big and small. As
usual the Government is too late in regulating this wonderful and unusual
place, In my opinion the intiar area shuold be closed off to any fishing
and strickley regulated to all land and diving operations. The diving is
still world class and the critters are still their however for how long I
do noy know. The ocean is being raped and turned into a barren desert by
fishermen with no morals or any idea of preserving thier way of life just
to make a buck. I here tell of oreintals killing hundreds of sea hourses on
cuosins rocks just to sell them for an afrodesiack. That kind of person
should not be breading in the first place. I am glad that my wife was able
to dive with Galopagos sharks and with many whale sharks, turtles, hammers,
silkies and rays before thay are all gone! We did have four straite dives
with whale sharks....WOW what awsome fish. lots of eels and barakudas and
jacks. as of Aug. 2007 the Galopagos is still great. We dove Wolf and
darwin for 2 days. That was all that we where alowed to dive it. I would go
back if we could dive nothing but wolf and darwin however I think thoes
days are gone! Go liveaboards and no daytripers!
