Thursday April 23rd

This week we welcomed aboard visitors coming from United Kingdom, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and USA. We picked them up from Itabaca Channel, located between Baltra and Santa Cruz Island. We had our checkout dive in calm and shallow water where we saw sea lions, sea turtles and stingrays.



Friday April 24th

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 see mobulas, golden caw rays, white tipped sharks, sea lions, sea turtles, eagle rays, scorpion fish, barracudas and tropical fish.


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



Saturday April 25th

We reached Wolf Island to dive with hammerhead sharks, sea lions, sea turtles, eagle rays, jacks, barracudas, scorpion fish, moray eels, Galapagos sharks and tropical fish.


Sunday April 26th

Sunday started with a new island, Darwin, one of the most famous ones in Galapagos. Here, we could dive with hammerhead sharks, sea lions, sea turtles, moray eels, scorpion fish, stingray gardens, eels, dolphins and tropical fish.


Monday April 27th

Cabo Marshall, is a special dive site for Mantas and Mobula rays. Here, the elegant manta ray passing besides us, with its extended curve fins ready to suck the plankton. Also hammerhead sharks, white tipped sharks, black tipped sharks, mobulas, golden fish, caw rays, barracudas and sea turtles were seen at this immersion.


Tuesday April 28th      

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. Also bat fish, sea robins, bat rays, sea horses, scorpion fish and cormorants were able to be found here.


During out afternoon dive at Punta Vicente Roca (North West of Isabela Island), we could see the largest fish on earth the “Mola Ramsayi”, magnificent creature.


Wednesday, April 29th      


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, sea turtles, barracudas, eagle rays, stingrays, scorpion fish, mobulas and tropical 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 later on, we went to enjoy Puerto Ayora, the local people and some shopping time.


Thursday, April 30th      


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!
