Description
Spend 7 night in the remarkable Galapagos Islands with Galapagos Sky.

Craving a HIGH OCTANE get away and dive experience? Look no further than the Galapagos Sky: the ultimate in luxury with exquisitely decorated public areas and accommodations. Each cabin is designed to offer deep restoration after each heart-pounding dive.

Rendezvous with Hammerhead sharks, who will be your constant companions on dives at Wolf and Darwin Islands, as well as seasonal Whaleshark and Manta Ray encounters. You can enjoy sightings of up to 7 species of sharks and 5 species of rays thru out the year just to keep you on the edge of your dive fins! Enjoy not only large pelagic encounters but colorful macro sightings as well! Galapagos fur sea lions, Mola Mola, Red lipped Bat Fish and colorful reef fish are just a few examples of the incredible sea creatures that you'll never find anywhere else in the world!

The Galapagos Sky provides the ultimate in luxury to her guests. The cabins complete with en suite baths provide a perfect retreat after a day of high energy diving. The package is completed by a highly professional, knowledgeable and accommodating crew.

The remote Galapagos Islands are located across the equator, 605 miles to the west of mainland Ecuador, and are considered by many to offer some of the most exciting diving in the world. Located at the confluence of three major oceanic currents, visitors to the islands of the Galapagos will find a stunning and diverse array of underwater formations and marine life. An archipelago of 15 main islands essentially untouched by time since visited by Charles Darwin in 1835, you’ll find a natural haven for wildly diverse marine life.

Hammerhead shark encounters in the Galapagos Islands are perhaps without equal anywhere in the world. They are your constant companions on dives at Wolf and Darwin Islands seen individually, in small groups or as walls of sharks numbering in the hundreds. Sea lions, schooling pelagics, colorful reef fish, corals, and invertebrates are just the tip of a "once-in-a-lifetime" iceberg of exceptional diving encounters in the Galapagos. You are never exactly sure what will happen on any dive, but you can count on high octane, pulse-pounding experiences on nearly every Galapagos dive!

Package includes:
  • State of the art, live-aboard accommodations on the Galapagos Sky for one guest on their Sunday to Sunday 8 day / 7 night departures .
  • Up to 4 dives a day at Wolfe and Darwin and 2-3 dives per day in central islands, up to 2 night dives starting Feb 3 2013 and mixed with land excursions.
