Galapagos Aggressor

Galapagos AggressorThe 30 metre Galapagos Aggressor has been operating as a dive liveaboard yacht in the Galapagos since 1993 and has been granted permits issued by the Galapagos National Park since 1994. The yacht was custom designed, built and equipped to offer a safe and luxury dive operation. Every two years the yacht goes through an extensive dry-dock.

Galapagos Aggressor departs Baltra on Thursdays for its 7 night / max. 23 dive (including 2 night dives) itinerary, spending 2-3 days around Darwin and Wolf Islands. The itinerary includes a hike to Bartolome Summit and a shore excursion to the beautiful Highlands of Santa Cruz Island visiting Los Gemelos (The Twins, two enormous sinkholes), Scalesia Forest for a scenic view over Santa Cruz, a Tortoise Reserve to see the giant tortoises, and Lava Tubes. After the hike, guests can walk through town, shop and visit the tortoise-breeding centre, Fausto Llerena, at the Charles Darwin Research Station.
