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.

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.

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.

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!
