Our itinerary is prepared according with the time of year of your visit: Jan - May: We dive Marshall Cape, located on the Northeast side of Isabela Island, with its populations of giant mantarrays, mobulas, enormous schools of barracudas, Galapagos sharks, sea lions and the, by now, traditional host of Galapagos critters. Cabo Marshall has another important attraction, the flightless cormorants, which can be seen resting on the shores. June - Dec: We dive Douglas Cape in the morning to observe the gracious marine iguanas feeding on algae, underwater. First, you can observe them catching sun to warm them up and later they will go into the sea to feed themselves for around 20 minutes, they return to the shores and warm up again. It will be different to see them laying on the beach, even disgusting while spitting saltwater from their noses, but they look different, even elegant on the water. You can also observe penguins, Galapagos sharks and different schools of fishes. Punta Vicente Roca, at the northwest coast of Isabela Island, where different species can be observed: turtles galore, Peruvian grunts, flat worms, sponges, sea lions, frogfish, octopus, nudibranches, Galapagos bullhead shark, mola molas (the largest bony fish in the sea), penguins, schools of black striped salemas, sea horses, dolphins, tunas; and nesting on the shores, Nazca and Blue-footed boobies, pelicans and other marine birds, all of them feeding at the same time.

My name is Jose Solis and I am Quiteño - galapagueño. My passion is diving because the underwater encounters make me discover an entire new universe in the ocean at the time that it allows me to have a new way to see the world. I have dedicated a large part of my life to search the simple details that make the sub aquatic experience a trip to enjoy every day in my life with another perspective.
