2018 is a year of big anniversaries for the Galapagos Islands, with it being the 50th anniversary of it being managed as a national park plus the 40th anniversary of its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And UK-based Tour Operator Dive Worldwide is offering big savings too, with a discount of up to £2,300 per couple aboard the Galapagos Sky.
Accommodating up to 16 guests in eight private en-suite cabins, all furnished with modern amenities, the Galapagos Sky is a luxurious liveaboard giving guests a seven night world-class diving adventure.
The week long itinerary offers 17-19 dives (weather dependent) from tenders, plus three land excursions exploring the highlands for tortoises on Santa Cruz, observing the panoramic views and volcanic topography on Bartolome, as well as the Darwin Interpretation Centre on San Cristobal.
Diving highlights include three days spent around Darwin and Wolf Islands where encounters with hammerhead sharks, large pods of dolphins, manta and mobula rays and whale sharks are common. Divers will be mesmerised at the abundance and variety of marine life here including octopus, tropical fish and large schools of pelagic species. Unique to Galapagos is the opportunity to dive with the endemic marine iguanas at Cabo Douglas, a real highlight of this itinerary! Your final dive will be at Isla Pinzon which is alive with an abundance of marine life including fish of all sizes, sharks, rays and sea lions.
