WHO SHOULD GO? The scuba diving enthusiast that wants to experience the crown jewel of all scuba diving trips.
WHERE IS IT? The Galapagos Islands aboard the Master Liveaboard, where the weather is fairly stable all year round with water temperatures ranging from 71-78 degrees Fahrenheit. Join us as we explore the waters of the Galapagos Islands and we sail through the different islands and take multiple trips throughout one day. Swim amongst sea creatures you thought you’d never see up close deep in the waters of the archipelago. Join our experienced dive master, Kevin Stuart, as he navigates you throughout the waters.
WHEN: September 18 – 25, 2017
ITINERARY: You will board on September 18, 2017 and you will disembark by 10am on September 25, 2017. You may be able to get a flight home the same day, but make sure you leave yourself plenty of time to make connections or we suggest spending the night in Guayaquil. We can arrange other tours for you from Guayaquil.
What: Some of the wildlife that you can expect to see and possible swim amongst includes hammerhead sharks, whale sharks, silky sharks, sea turtles, giant morays, and schooling fish in their thousands. You may also see giant manta rays, black-striped salemas, mola, hawkfish, frogfish, and even sea iguanas, too! You may even get the chance to see penguins and the playful sea lions.
