Video:  Galapagos Video By Land and Sea

We are going back during the PRIME TIME of the year to dive with these magnificent giant fish – the gentle Whale Sharks!  But we are adding a stop at Cabo Douglas to see the giant Mola Mola “sunfish” and the marine iguanas that are the only iguanas to live in the ocean and on land!  The Galapagos offers more than the mind can imagine.  It is a breathtaking world.  The wealth of marine life is incredible and exciting!  Whale Sharks, schooling Hammerheads 

and other sharks, huge rays (and schools of them), turtles, seals and sea lions and even the Galapagos penguins! There are nudibrachs and seahorses as well!  Absolutely AMAZING!  We book this adventure far in advance, as this time of year sells out quickly!

New Live Aboard – The Tiburon Explorer! 

It is very sad that the live aboard we were going to use, The Majestic Explorer, accidentally ran into rocks, and could not be salvaged.  Fortunately, no one was hurt!  The good news is that we will be diving from the brand new Tiburon Explorer live aboard!  She is almost the same as the Majestic Explorer, but a little larger, fine tuned, a brand new and elegant and luxury dive yacht!  We’ll still be diving with our friends at Explorer Ventures, as well.   A professional, friendly crew, beautiful accommodations, and delicious food/drink!  The live aboard holds 16. All spacious staterooms have one or 2 beds, A/C, private bath, and windows.  First come first serve.  Diving is done from 2 pangas (tenders), easily boarded on the dive deck.  It’s a masterpiece liveaboard to match the diving in the Galapagos!
