Scuba Diving in the Galapagos Looks Amazing!

Joe Somebody Snorkeling in Grand TurkAs many of you know, I enjoy snorkeling.  On my last cruise I went snorkeling in Nassau, Half Moon Cay, and Grand Turk.  I was impressed with all the beautiful fish and the pure enjoyment of exploring the ocean.  Yesterday, I was discussing the trip with a guy from work.  I was telling him how cool it was to see the fish and that I really enjoyed getting to use my GoPro to record it all.  He said his sister had recently been on a trip to the Galapagos Islands and went scuba diving.  Apparently, part of the package included a video of the experience.  He just happened to have said video on his laptop.

I was absolutely amazed at what I was seeing.  There were tons of fish, starfish, marine iguanas, hammer-head sharks, sting rays, etc...  I almost instantly felt like my snorkeling adventure was nothing more than a swim in a bathtub.  As I watched the video, drooling, I started mentally adding Scuba Diving in The Galapagos to my bucket list.  I did get snapped back to reality when he told me he thought the trip costed about $6,500 per person.  Oh well, maybe some day!

I really wish I could share the exact video that I saw because it was spectacular, but as it was made by the dive company, I don't have the rights to share it.  However, I did find this interesting video that was somewhat similar already on the tubes. You can watch it and get a feel for what it's like to go scuba diving in The Galapagos!

  1. I’m impressed, I must tell you. Very rarely do I come across a blog that’s both informative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your blog is important, the issue is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about. scuba diving
