Galapagos Islands, a place that time almost forgot, they find a tour galapagos islands travel that money brings. It has become a problem for the islands and confusion for the islanders and the government. Too much and too fragile tourist sites tourists, no money. But the forces that will do their best to balance everything. Our interest lies in the swim with sharks, whale sharks. On orders from one of our fellow divers who have made the trip before we stop in Quito, the capital of Ecuador, for a few days a trip to San Cristobal, for some site seeing.
It was worth it, the city itself is very interesting and entertaining, while the surrounding area offers beautiful scenery and many interesting people.The region is the largest producer of roses in the world twenty-five long-stemmed roses for $ 1.00 USD, The stalk their national currency. The next stop is the island of San Cristobal, where the jump for the dive trips. Here we go to the Galapagos Explorer II and adventure began.After location and settled in our room we were introduced to the captain and crew and welcomed, there are fourteen divers and eight crew.
Then we went to a small island, not far from San Cristobal to a dive into our equipment and buoyancy test. On the first dive we encounter sea lions and able to communicate with their videos. Later that day we are all called to a briefing where the divemaster told us that if we want to dive one to one hundred and forty miles away and that the ship was moving at an average speed of ten knots. Pretty simple math, we have some time on our hands. rest was welcome after the flight and other travel. I would say that the crew are very good, like food and housing and diving. Derived from the volcanic Galapagos Islands and a little unusual, not what one would call pretty but liver. The combination of the open sea and beautiful island and striking and isolated, but must be seen to be truly appreciated.
As might be expected to draw dolphins boat and we were entertained by their behavior at times. Divemaster on board also certified on the island of the guidelines required by law in order for our group can visit the islands themselves, and then tours are planned and coordinated by the government. They really tell the captain some time to land on the island and how long to stay. Good enough, lets go diving. After arriving in Darwin we are ready and pigeon island near Darwin’s Arch. Bow itself is about two hundred yards from Darwin Island and are on the shallow plateau around the arch and then dropping to depths of several thousand meters.
Open water swimming is referred to as blue because the water is so deep and wide around you is blue because you’ll see when you visit our website and some videos. Address the resource box. On the first dive we did not see the whale sharks and hammerhead sharks somewhat disappointed, but there are sharks, dolphins and various sea creatures. On almost every dive after that we really see whale sharks and able to take some nice video and our first sighting pictures.After dive master told us that this is the first whale shark this season looks like.
