Formerly the Sky Dancer motor vessel, the 16-passenger Galapagos Sky is a live-aboard diving ship that was refurbished in 2010 to now offer even more comfortable accommodations and provide the perfect base from which to enjoy the most incredible diving possible in the Galapagos Islands.   The Galapagos Sky “Live-Aboard Diving Cruises” in the Galapagos are 8-day/7-night cruises, with an itinerary offering a total of 17-19 dives (check-out dive included) and three (3) land excursions on every trip.   On every voyage, the vessel travels to Wolf and Darwin Islands, where the diving is arguably the best in the world! Similarly, while diving in the “central islands” of the Galapagos archipelago, you will experience the diversity of Galapagos diving. In addition to mantas, sharks and seasonal Whale sharks, you will be able to photograph Galapagos invertebrates in vibrant color… and keep an eye out for the mola molas!   For your filming needs, the Galapagos Sky has an onboard lab for both photographic and video work, as well as a light table and daily E-6 development. On deck, there’s ample storage space for personal diving equipment and an open deck for sunbathing.   Fully air-conditioned, the Galapagos Sky’s interior features teak paneling and furnishings, a dining area, a fully stocked bar and the main salon with an audio/visual entertainment center.   Accommodations include eight (8) private en-suite cabins with two twin or one king size bed options. Each cabin features a private head/shower, a mirrored cabinet and wardrobe, bathrobes, hairdryer, and marine-safe (biodegradable) toiletries.

Todo resultó impecable
La organización, los guías, los hoteles y todos los servicios contratados
Destaco la amabilidad, y predisposición de Rachel, nuestra guía de gran parte de la estadía en Quito. Y los guías en las islas, Peter, Carlos Lopez y otros cuyo nombre no recuerdo
También al chofer, Darwin, ayudándo para que obtengamos buenas fotos
Recomiendo la agencia por la cordialidad y profesionalismo.

star rating  Gran viaje, excelente servicio  - Los tours que nos recomendaron y que hicimos fueron muy buenos. Muy buena atencion y servicio.

También quiero mencionar que uno de nuestros vuelos se atrasó y ellos movieron mar y tierra para que no se perdiera el vuelo. Se terminó cambiando el vuelo gracias a ellos y hasta en el aeropuerto de galápagos ya sabían de nuestro caso. Muy agradecidos con Surtrek.
