Day three: April 26, 2011
Diving Punta Carrión in Santa Cruz Island
First day of a diving cruise in the Galapagos Islands is always a bit slow. Check out dives in “user friendly” dive sites. Today we did a couple of dives in the Santa Cruz and Baltra area, refueled the ship and departed for Darwin Island. There is not much to report on this day “advanced diving –wise”.
We were on our rebreathers doing recreational profiles with 62 and 66 minute runtimes and saw some wildlife. A few shots:
All three rebreathers are ready, our air diluent is toped up and we have 200 bar of oxygen in our cylinders. We are using air as a bailout and expect good things from the days to come. We are on our way to Darwin Island right now. This is the northenmost island in the Galapagos Marine Reserve and is about 120 miles north from the central islands. Our ETA is about 9am and we will hit the water as soon as we get there.
