2017 brought us the opportunity to train Javier as ur intern while providing support on 2, 7-day full rebreather charters for Pete Mesley and Lust 4 Rust aboard the vessel Nortada; it was a trip full of challenges but successful in the end.

2019 was a year that came accompanied with the tragic news of Andy Phillips, one of our first and most loyal clients, sadly passing away. This time we provided support for Andy's guests as a way of honoring all the work and effort he put into making Galapagos Rebreathers grow. A trip loaded with emotions and memories aboard Humboldt Explorer, but what better way to honor a friend than doing what he loved the most? Darwin islands will never forget his presence around. On this trip, we had Eduardo taking care of the briefings and guiding us while Jorge and Javier took care of the logistics.

In June we provided support for Silverback productions, one of the biggest names in the multimedia world. We worked together with Diddier Noirot, a very recognized cameraman in the industry since Calypso and Jacques Cousteau's dream of documenting the underwater wonders. This trip was organized and delivered for Netflix! At the same time, we provided full rebreather support for 16 guests onboard Galapagos Sky on a trip organized by Florida Underwater Sports. Providing goods and support for 2 trips simultaneously definitely speaks highly about our staff; we had 3 CCR guides working as a team to make it happen! Thanks to Jorge, Eduardo, and Javier for making our name stand out in the industry!

The biggest trip of the year was together with Aron Arggrimson, director of The Dirty Dozen Expeditions. This trip was planned 5 years ago and the expectation had been growing up until it was finally the time for it. Personally, I've admired Arons work since I first got into technical diving so it feels like achieving a milestone. In this trip, we went back onboard Deep Blue, and we had a variety of units on the dive deck, REVO's, KISS Spirit, Hollis P2's, Meg's, JJ's, and Inspirations! We were able to support more than 250 dives in total! One of the nicest surprises of this trip was having a returning customer from our 2020 trip, which definitely points out how worth diving in the Galapagos on a CCR. Even better, 5 of our guests from this trip will be returning on March 2023.
