WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT A 10-NIGHT ITINERARY ?
10-night itineraries at Galapagos are a rare and enticing opportunity to spend additional dive time at the heart-pounding sites surrounding Darwin & Wolf Islands ... a diver's dream come true.
This trip includes all the best of the Galapagos – but adds more hours of spectacular diving with the largest and most enthralling Galapagos marine life - with up to 4 dives per day ... plus some spectacular land visits.
The custom itinerary will include everything you've always longed to see ... or to see again. You'll dive amongst the awe-inspiring hordes of hammerheads which prowl the waters around Darwin & Wolf. Add to those silky sharks, enormous Galapagos sharks, eagle rays, manta rays & mola-mola …. sea turtles, giant morays and schooling fish in the thousands …
Then, too, you’ve got black coral with plenty of macro life - seahorses, blennies, nudibranchs, hawkfish and frogfish. Everyone loves the enigmatic sea iguanas, the penguins racing around at full speed and playful sea lions.
Don't forget the extraordinary land animals of the Galapagos ... the blue-footed & red-footed boobies ... the marine iguanas & land iguanas ... the penguins (yes, penguins !) ... the giant tortoises ... the flightless cormorants ... and more ... which so fascinated Charles Darwin.
WHALE SHARK SEASON
So, you've been enjoying the unique creatures of the Galapagos Islands & swirling shark life when ... whoa ! you look up to see a massive life form cruising along just above you. You're in Galapagos waters at the peak of whale shark season.
No diver can deny the startling sensation of their first whale shark sighting, especially the well-fed behemoths of the eastern Pacific Ocean.
With the convergence of three oceanic currents, the water temperatures and plankton life are ideal for whale sharks from June to November. A bevy of fish species accompany them on their migration adding to the excitement.
Encounters with these animals are the apex Galapagos moments for many divers.
