Galapagos Master Liveaboard, 28 Aug-4 Sept 2017

Equator Diving invites you to join a trip of a lifetime to dive the world famous Galapagos Islands. Our trip is purposefully timed for prime Whale and Whale Shark season. Galapagos has big stuff year round but July-September brings in the biggest of the big. Whale Sharks, Humpback, Pilot and Melon Headed Whales are amongst the visitors, and they will be sharing the seas with the Galapagos Islands year round residents – the schooling Hammerheads, Galapagos Sharks, Silky Sharks, Penguins, Mola Mola, Sea Lions and the fascinating Red-Lipped Batfish. Our trip will take place on the luxurious Galapagos Master Liveaboard.
