"The Galapagos diving on Galapagos Sky was superb. The vessel itself was well equipped (which I sort of hoped / knew as it was a Peter Hughes fleet) but nevertheless the service on board was great. As was the food, my my, no hope of losing weight. Honestly after each dive I am wrapped in hot towels and served a hot drink and nibbles! The diving was sublime... I saw hundreds of Hammerhead sharks, a Whale Shark, Orca's, sea-lions, penguins, Iguana's, Manta's, Mola Mola (huge Sun Fish) and so much more. Points for you to note for future bookings, Galapagos Sky provided for free the following to each diver for the safety as we were diving in strong currents: a dive sausage, dive alert/horn, and a Nautilus lifeline tracking device (which you had confirmed). Must admit they took safety seriously which was excellent."
