Thursday January 7th

This week we welcomed aboard visitors coming from Canada, USA, Austria, Switzerland and China. We picked everyone up from Baltra Airport in the morning and headed out to a briefing and to get ready for our check dive. During our check out time we saw stingrays, sea turtles and tropical fish.


Friday January 8th

On Friday, we had two dives in Punta Carrion north side of Santa Cruz Island. We were able to see hammerhead sharks, manta rays, mobulas, sea lions, sea turtles, eagle rays, golden caw rays, white tip sharks and tropical fish.


Late on, we had a land tour in Bartolome Island to see a volcanic and pristine land scape from the top.



Saturday January 9th

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


Sunday January 10th

Sunday started with a new island, Darwin, one of the most famous ones in Galapagos. Here, we could see the hammerhead sharks, black tip sharks, silky sharks, sea turtles, moray eels, jacks, tunas, sea lions, eagle rays, scorpion and tropical fish.


Monday January 11th

Around Darwin Island, we had another dive time, in which we saw hammerhead sharks, white tip sharks, sea lions, sea turtles, mobulas, eagle rays, barracudas, stingrays and tropical fish.


Tuesday January 12th

Going down south, at Cabo Douglas and Punta Vicente Roca, Tuesday gave us the chance to see other variety of the marine life: we could swim with mantas, mobulas, mola molas, eagle rays, golden cow rays, stingrays, cormorants, sea lions, sea turtles, bat fish, moray eels and tropical fish joined us one more time.


Wednesday January 13th

On Wednesday, after a night navigation going east, we could visit Cousins’ Rock. She was waiting for us with sea lions, white tip sharks, sea turtles, eagle rays, stingrays, moray eels, barracudas, scorpion and tropical fish.


Later on, we went to visit the highlands of Santa Cruz to see the famous giant tortoises: the Galapagos were peacefully walking around the place, in the wild. It was a precious moment.


Thursday January 14th


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!
