No dry suits or chattering teeth for us! Many of our guests were keen to visit Galapagos but were nervous of the islands’ chilly reputation. Wendy and I decided to plan a trip to the Galapagos Islands at the time of year when the waters of the Galapagos become relatively warm and clear. If you want to see great schools of hammerheads, mantas, sea lions and other bountiful marine life, this is the time for you.

AMAZING! Richard is able to make scientific talks hugely entertaining . I learnt so much, and every dive after the talks I found myself on the hunt for the new critters I had just learnt all about. Brilliant!
