Galapagos 2012

Expedition Dates:August 23, 2011 - August 30, 2011
Destination:Galapagos, Ecuador
Cost:Various Sold Out

The Galapagos is just one of those destinations that we have to go back to time and time again. No where else on earth can you find the guaranteed consistent big animal underwater photography & video opportunities. We are excited to announce a return trip for 2012 to this unique wonder of the world, the Galapagos Archipelago. Jason Heller or Matt Weiss will be leading this trip of a lifetime.


The Galapagos are located approximately 600 west of mainland Ecuador. Prepare for an underwater photography or video experience of a lifetime. The main objective of this trip is to dive in the areas of the highest concentration of photo & video opportunities. We've specifically scheduled the trip during the heart of whale shark season, but you can also expect to see schooling hammerhead and galapagos sharks, as well as several other shark species, sealions, dolphins,  manta rays, eagle rays, turtles and other pelagic action.

Our expedition vessel is the Galapagos Aggressor live aboard, and we will be cruising the Galapagos Archipelago for 7 nights. We will focus as much diving as possible in the Northern islands of Wolf & Darwin.
