The Enchanted Isles….

Ready to dive the Galapagos Islands?

Ready to see an incredible assortment of underwater and terrestrial life, up close and personal?

Ready to see the islands that inspired the most profound theory of life on this planet?

Our group looks for birds and penguins at the base of the iconic Pinnacle Rock.

Join renowned photographer Chris Parsons for an amazing trip to the enchanted Galapagos Islands, aboard the finest live-aboard dive boat in the area, the Galapagos Sky.

The Galapagos Sky captains and crew have diving in Galapagos figured out. This is an ideal itinerary, with lots of time at Darwin and Wolf Islands, but also with stops to see things like the marine iguanas, penguins, and mola mola, as well as some shore excursions.

This is Chris’ 3rd visit to Galapagos. Your trip will be led by an experienced traveler, with an expert eye for underwater photography. As Chris says, “I don’t think there is a more exciting place to dive in the entire world.”

Each day you’ll have an opportunity to look at your images and talk about technique and ideas for the next day. Chris will help you get the most of your trip, including capturing the best possible photos or video.

Mrs. Whaleshark. She’s about as big as a school bus.

From whalesharks to hammerheads, sea lions to penguins, mantas to mola molas, the big animal opportunities are endless. The scenery in Galapagos is spectacular in it’s own right. We could write about this for days, but you’ve heard about this magical place, so let’s get into some details about the trip.
