Thursday December 3rd

This week we welcomed aboard visitors coming from different countries like Romania, USA, Japan, Spain, France and United Kingdom. We picked them from Itabaca Channel, located between Baltra and Santa Cruz Island. We had our checkout dive in calm and shallow water where we swam with sea lions, sting rays and sea turtles.

 

 

Friday December 4th

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 sea lions, sea turtles, snappers, white tip sharks and eagle rays.

 

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

 

 

Saturday December 5th

 

We reached Wolf Island to dive with hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks eagle rays, yellow fin tunas and wahoos.

 

Sunday December 6th

Sunday started with a new island, Darwin, one of the most famous ones in Galapagos. Here, we could dive with hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, sea lions, sea turtles and jurel jacks .

 

Monday December 7th

We stayed at Wolf and Darwin area to dive with hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, sea lions and sea turtles.

 

Tuesday December 8th      

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 swim with sea lions, sea turtles, sea horses, salemas, horn jacks, sting rays, penguins, cormorant and king angel fish.

 

Wednesday, December 9th          

 

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 eagle rays, white tip sharks, sea turtles, sea lions and mobula 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. Later on, we went to enjoy Puerto Ayora, the local people and some shopping time.

 

Thursday, December 10th        

 

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!
