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!
