The Galapagos archipelago is a world famous hotspot for observing marine mega fauna, especially sharks. The use of rebreather technologies provides great opportunity for very close wildlife experiences in the islands.

In the Galapagos hundreds of hammerhead sharks and giant manta rays cruising overhead while big schools of Galapagos sharks wonder very close can be the fore playing scene for a bus sized whale shark to appear out of the blue. This is the reason why many diving enthusiasts and underwater imaging specialists come every year.

But very few of the regular tourists will ever have the opportunity to witness this world patrimony national park with the bubble less and quiet and moist environment a rebreather provides. Trips like this have rarely been put together in the past and this amazing experience is now made available to a very limited and select group of divers.
October 14 to 21. This trip is on board Humboldt Explorer, a well-established vessel in the market. Carrying 16 people, this is aimed as a rebreather only trip and will be run in conjunction with Andy Phillips.
