Thursday Jun 25th

This week we welcomed aboard visitors coming from Italy, USA, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Trinidad y Tobago and Canada. We picked them up from Itabaca Channel, located between Baltra and Santa Cruz Island. We headed out to a briefing and to get ready for our check dive. We came up with a plan for the incoming days and later on, went to check dive and we saw our first stingrays.

 

Friday Jun 26th

On Friday, we had two dives in Punta Carrion north side of Santa Cruz Island. We were able to see sea lions and white tipped sharks. Late on, we had a land tour in Bartolome Island to see a volcanic and pristine land scape from the top.

 

Saturday Jun 27th

We reached Wolf Island to dive with hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks and eagle rays.

 

Sunday Jun 28th

Sunday started with a new island, Darwin, one of the most famous ones in Galapagos. Here, we were lucky to find Galapagos sharks, Hammerhead sharks and sea turtles.

 

Monday Jun 29th

Cabo Marshall, is a special dive site for Mobula rays. Here, we were able to see Hammerhead sharks, Galapagos Sharks and sea turtles.

 

Tuesday Jun 30th      

At Fernandina Island, we had a really special place to dive with Marine Iguanas eating algae where the smallest ones wait for the low tide to eat. With them, mola molas, penguins, salemas, sea turtles and sea horses were able to be found here.

 

Wednesday, Jul 1st   
  
During the morning, we went to Cousin’s rock, located close to east side of Santiago Island. This day, nostalgic for our guests, since it was the last dive of the trip, was a nice good bye; we saw sea lions and eagle rays. In the afternoon we had a land tour Santa Cruz Island were you easily notice the different vegetation and wheatear conditions in such small place, even from the bus ride. We saw giant tortoises in the wild and later on, we went to enjoy Puerto Ayora, the local people and some shopping time.

 

Thursday, Jul 2nd      

We said our farewells to our guests, feeling a little bit sad that our group was leaving us, but having the sensation of a great week. Thanks again for joining us along the Galapagos Aggressor; we hope to see you again soon!
