The Galapagos Islands are justifiably on most divers’ wish lists. But how about taking the family along on this adventure of a lifetime?
Next July 15-22 2018, during peak whale shark season, go and enjoy one of the rarest and unique experiences on earth. Join family travel experts Family Dive Adventures for their 12th week in the Galapagos Islands. They privately charter the luxury 16 passenger liveaboard Galapagos Sky with 11 Ecuadorian Crew Members, including dive instructors and private park guides. Fraser Purdon a PADI instructor and Tech instructor will be leading this Kids Sea Camp adventure with his 15-year-old daughter Sophie Purdon a PADI Master Diver.
The Galapagos Sky vessel offers the most kid-friendly dive team in the Galapagos. This trip will also feature a milder schedule and itinerary suited for family diving the famous Galapagos Islands. Gently swept by the waters of three major oceanic currents, the Galapagos Islands provide a stunning range of extraordinary diving encounters for liveaboard divers.
