Darrell has a really special birthday this year and the Galapagos Islands have long been on his bucket list of dives he wants to do.  So he is all booked and heading off in July 2019 to achieve diving some of the most world renowned dive sites, amongst all the stunning sea life that the Galapagos offers.  The trip will be liveaboard based on the Aggressor III and will include an afternoon land based excursion.  There will be an overnight stop at each end of the trip too.

Have a read through the itinerary and let me know if you have any questions.  This is a short notice decision.  But if you make the choice to join Darrell, you wont regret it!  Think David Attenborough doco with you in it!

A deposit is required to secure your spot and the rest is paid in instalments.

The cost is $13125 and includes all of the following:
