Comments Excellent trip all around. Boat was great, staff superb, food superb. Land trips excellent and informative. The diving? Unbelievable quantities of marine life. Highlights: Hammers, Mola Mola, Marine Iguanas, Safety stops with hammers below, silkys and Galapagos sharks all round. Sea lions, cormorants and lots of rays.

Water was cool and 5 (+3 around uppper body) mm with hood was not quite enough for me on repetitive dives on some of the later islands on the west side.

Visibility was less than average (according to dive masters) to add a bit of mystery to some of the dives: like a whale shark looming out of the fog, passing within feet of most of us who were oblivious but for the lucky few, alert divers who got a great fly by- just one of many moments that helped define the trip.

We will return and recommend this to anybody who has dived in currents/surge and temperatures significantly lower than the Carib/Western Pacific.
