We are very excited to be leading a trip to the mysterious and unbelievable Galapagos Islands in 2023. Aboard the Humboldt explorer, we will see everything these islands have to offer; including the marine iguanas, hammerhead sharks, giant tortoises, and hopefully a few whale sharks.

The Humboldt Explorer comfortably accommodates 16 passengers in spacious, air-conditioned rooms. Each with their own bathrooms (including shower), televisions, and ocean view. This “dive yacht” features a sun deck with a jacuzzi, salon area for dining, and a bar & entertainment area. The dive deck is fully equipped for all of your pre and post dive needs! See their website for more information on the accommodations.

Not only will there be life changing diving on this trip, but there will be incredible land excursions as well. You will visit the giant tortoises of Santa Cruz and have a naturalist take you on a tour of North Seymour Island to see the Blue Footed Boobies, Frigate Birds, iguanas, and the sea lions! It is truly a once in a lifetime experience to see all of these amazing creatures (both land and sea) on one adventure.
