GALAPAGOS:  When you hear “Galapagos” you may think of “Evolution versus Creation”, or you may think of tortoises and Booby Birds.  If you’re a diver, your first thought is “Wow, I wanna go!”!  The marine life in the Galapagos Islands is unique, amazing and wonderous.  Schools of hammerhead sharks, colonies of sea lions, marine iguanas, Mola Molas, dolphins, and more.  The unquestioned best way to dive the Galapagos Islands is on a live-a-board boat to allow you to dive the far reaches of the islands, including the world-famous Wolf and Darwin Islands.

Scuba Sensations has done its usual homework and picked a live-a-board boat that will comfortably and expertly take us to all the wonderful dive sites in the islands.  The Calipso boat has been operating Naturalist Tours of the island for XX years.  We will also get to do a land tour because you can’t visit Galapagos without seeing up close the wonders of life on land in one of the world’s most historic and scientifically profound places on earth.
