One of the 7 Underwater Wonders of the World, the tales of creatures large and small that come back with divers are the stuff of legends. The profuse aquatic life envelope you into their world. Don’t miss this opportunity to dive with marine iguanas, Galapagos sharks, humpback and sperm whales. The Galapagos are located over 600 miles west of mainland Ecuador and consist of 19 main islands and numerous smaller islets. Most of them are barren land with bizarre volcanic features and are actually the peaks of underwater volcanoes, having risen from the sea floor a few million years ago. Apart from their interesting geology and geography, this archipelago is particularly famous for its fascinating nature. As the islands lie far out in the Pacific Ocean, many unique species of animals and plants evolved over time and are only found there and nowhere else in the world.

What to Expect From Your First Liveaboard
I still remember the first time I decided to plunge into something new and book my first liveaboard charter. None of my dive buddies wanted to join me, so I grabbed my gear and set sail alone. There are far too many places to discover in the world to pass this up!Â I must admit that the excitement of exploring a new underwater environment was paired with a little fear of what I might enc...Read Blog
