Come join us on the trip of a lifetime! And at an incredible price!
The Galapagos Islands are truly breathtaking on so many levels, a truly unique place to visit and explore. Being as isolated as they are, much of the wildlife is unique to the islands themselves, impossible to see anywhere else. Still, much more of the wildlife are rare species that come to the Galapagos Islands seasonally for feeding, mating, or otherwise. This trip will be packed with opportunity to see some amazing creatures and explore some breathtaking geologic formations, both above and below the water.
We'll fly into either Guayaquil or Quito a day or two before departure and explore the city and Ecuadorian culture. From there we'll catch a flight direct to the islands, pay our marine park fee, and be shuttled to our boat, The Galapagos Aggressor III, where we'll spend the next 7 nights aboard enjoying multiple dives a day and delicious food and entertain living aboard. Our charter includes some land activities as well in order to get the full experience of this diverse environment.
The Galapagos Aggressor III is 100 feet long, built and powered for comfort, safety and stability. Comfortable accommodations include four deluxe staterooms which have two twin beds and three portholes and four master staterooms with a queen bed (which can be modified to 2 twin beds) and a large window. Each cabin has a private toilet, shower, hair dryer, TV/Blue Ray DVD, stereo CD player, temperature controls and safe storage box.
The Galapagos Aggressor III sleeps 16 guests in privacy and comfort. She has a beautiful spacious salon, large sun deck with shading, chaise lounges and deck chairs, bar, grill, HOT TUB, and a complete photo/video center.
There is a variety of nightly entertainment, including diving, fish identification presentations, movies, games and more. All meals, snacks and beverages are provided.
The average water temperature is 60-75F during this time of year. That said, a 5-7 mm suit is recommended.
Upon completion of the liveaboard portion of the trip, we'll fly back to the mainland and spend a couple of additional days exploring the Andes and culture a bit more.
This is absolutely a trip of a lifetime.
