Great time on Humboldt!Verified review

We really enjoyed our liveaboard in the Galapagos aboard Humboldt Explorer. Even in the 'off-season' in March, we were able to see hammerheads and other marine life in most of our dives. The conditions varied, from strong current to little current. The Humboldt Explorer crew is great. They were very helpful before and after each dive, making sure you felt comfortable. They also have GPS, dive alert, and surface marker for every diver in case you get separated from the group. As a vegetarian, my only negative experience was the food. They tried to use a lot of fake meat options that were bland and didn't do a good job of providing different cuisines/tastes, so it all started to grow old / feel the same toward the end of the week. Other than that, the two dives guides, Alex and Xavier were great. Very knowledgeable of the dive sites and found ways for us to get the most of our experience. This was truly the trip of a lifetime!

The Galápagos, Wolf and DarwinVerified review

A stunning trip, possibly one of the best ever. The Site of Sharks Bay on Wolf Island is fantastic, sitting and watching hundreds of Hammerheads, plus Turtles, Morays, Galápagos Sharks, and a host of different fish was memorable. The staff and guides were great and very helpful, life on board was regimented as we got into the swing of things, sleep eat dive repeat!! Great bunch of diving companions, many of whom l am in contact with now. The boat was a tad tired, in comparison with my last trip in the Maldives on the Blue Force One, but then you are in different waters. Food was ok, well filling, sorry but l have run catering establishments all my life so probably have high standards. Oh and if you like gelatine, you will be in heaven, as it is in almost all the deserts. All in all, a great dive and if you have the cash go for it.
