Galapagos 2023 Trip Recap

Galapagos diving
For as long as it has been known to human civilization, the Galapagos Islands have been shrouded in mystique and intrigue. This archipelago of rugged volcanic islands, located 500 miles west of South America, is reminiscent of a bygone era when reptiles dominated the planet. Giant Galapagos tortoises and Godzilla-faced marine iguanas were some of the breadcrumbs leading to Darwin's theory of evolution and remain an enigma to the lucky few that get to witness them today. In May 2023, the divers and adventurers on our Bluewater Travel underwater photo workshop became some of the lucky few to witness the incredible diversity that the hand of evolution has produced in the middle of the Pacific.
