Thursday, November 12th

This week we welcomed aboard visitors coming from different countries like South Korea, Spain, France, Italy and Austria. We picked them from Itabaca Channel, located between Baltra and Santa Cruz Island. We had our checkout dive in calm and shallow water with white tip sharks, sting rays and sea lions.

 

 

Friday, November 13th

On Friday, we had two dives in Punta Carrion north side of Santa Cruz Island and then at Punta Carrión in Bartolome Island. We were able to dive with sea turtles, sea lions, parrot fish and moray eels.

 

We had a land tour in Bartolome Island to see a volcanic and pristine land scape from the top.

 

 

Saturday, November 14th

We reached Wolf Island to dive with hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, black tip sharks, wahoos, sea turtles and sea lions.

 

Sunday, November 15th

Sunday started with a new island, Darwin, one of the most famous ones in Galapagos. Here, we could dive with hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, black tip sharks, yellow fin tunas, sea turtles and sea lions.

 

Monday, November 16th

We stayed at Wolf and Darwin area to dive with hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks,tunas, wahoos and sierras.

 

Tuesday, November 17th

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.

 

During out afternoon dive at Punta Vicente Roca (North West of Isabela Island), a magnificent landscape that shows the uniqueness of western Galapagos volcanoes where a collapse caldera floor is revealed, was a perfect place to see salemas and scorpion fish, penguins, cormorants, sea lions, sea turtles, groupers and eagle rays.

 

We could see the largest fish on earth the “Mola Ramsayi”, magnificent creature.

 

Wednesday, November 18th          

 

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 since we saw sea lions, sea turtles, eagle rays, barracudas, creole and scorpion fish.

 

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 the lava tunnels. Later on, we went to enjoy Puerto Ayora, the local people and some shopping time.

 

Thursday, November 19th        

 

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!
