Comments I knew what conditions to expect since I'd been before...cold water & strong currents but there is lots of life:many scalloped hammerheads,eagle rays + other rays,sea lions,marine iguanas,large seahorses,giant hawkfish,eels,turtles,galapagos sharks,dolphins,schools of large jacks,king angels,surgeon fish & barber fish,1 mola mola but no whalesharks.The crew handled all diving & related activities very well & safely.Food was good & our waiter served dinner dressed in a tux.Sodas,beer & wine were only limited by your diving.My cabin was on the upper deck with a huge window the length of the cabin.2 land tours were included.This trip was bogo so couldn't pass up going back for another look.
