My third visit to Galapagos but this time was special three times over. My wife, Red, came along and we got to spend a week touring Quito and several islands of Galapagos together.
Then she continued on for a few more days while I was joined by my two dear friends Alice and Shawn on the dive boat Nortada with Jorge of Galapagos Rebreathers. She got some amazing photos of the blue footed boobies and a lot more of the wild life and scenery. You can see a selection here.
For me the diving wasn’t as good a previous years due to lower visibility but the things we did see where very unique. Most divers hope to some day see a Mola Mola, we got to see 15 on one dive! Totally unheard of! These are truly some of the strangest animals on the planet. Also unique to Galapagos are the marine iguana that dive down to eat algae and can hold their breath for up to 40 mins. The every present sea lions were a joy to engage with as well.
