About this trip

  

Travel Time: The pier is a 2 minute walk from our office and then only a short boat ride to the first snorkel site.

The Tour: The bay tour consists of visiting 5 sites. The Loberia is a small island about 10 minutes into the bay where there is a large colony of sea lions. It provides an excellent environment to swim with the babies and playful youngsters. Shark Channel and Lovers Channel are both lovely sites and beautiful places to take in the blue footed boobies who are regularly seen resting on the cliffs close by. Dog`s beach gives you opportunity to get off the boat and walk through cactus forests to a remote beach where you will almost definitely encounter a marine iguana or many, and turtles are often seen feeding just off the shore. The last site is Las Grietas, a water filled crevice in the rocks. The water is cool and clear and great for snorkelling,

Alice was awesome. We had first time divers and a tight schedule. We dove two days. On our first day Alice coordinated a boat and two great dive masters Jimmy and Anderson - from Albatros. On day two we dove with a bigger group with Ronny - service was excellent, safety protocols were rigorous and equipment was in great shape. One of the guys on our second day of diving had lost their luggage - Alice coordinated everything with the airline to get it back. Those guys were diving 7 days with Academy - getting their advanced cert and loved every day. Thanks to Alice and team Derek

Totally surreal experience - the Complete Galapagos package really does feel complete. Words can't express what a great time we had and how happy we are with the trip as a whole. Alice is unbelievably helpful and makes sure that everything goes smoothly start to finish. Thank you so much for such a great trip that we will never forget!

It was a wonderful trip with a lot of new impressions. Therefore the long journey to Galapagos to the End of the World was really worth it. :-) Alice, you had the trip very well organised. Very good hotels, good tours and I had only to enjoy all. Muchas gracias, Alice.

Very bad instructor and agency was not mentioning anything about obvious difficult diving conditions. Absolutely not recommendable!
By Thomas D for Daily Dive Tours - $176 on 27 Sep, 2021
Thomas we are very sorry hear this. We wish you would have mentioned it while you were hear in Galapagos, obviously feedback is much easier to act upon when the events are fresh in our minds. North Seymour generally is not a difficult dive site, but maybe you dove a particularly rough day? I hope you enjoy your next diving experience.
