Best Liveaboard Ever!Verified review

The holidays aboard Tiburon Explorer were totally amazing. We went on April and had a wonderful experience. Saw tons of hammerhead sharks, mola mola, marine iguanas, flighless cormorant and much more. The guides, Natalia and David, were amazing and very professional. The crew aboard the cruise provided a superb service, so you could just focus on diving. The rooms were excellent, the food incredible and the overall service was from a luxury hotel. I will recommend it to anyone interested in a diving cruise in Galapagos!

Good but still room for improvement Verified review

Positive: very kind staff, super helpful when gearing up for dives, loaded photoequipment into and from panga, made sure to remember which equipment belonged to whom, dive equipment was washed every evening. Food was also very good. Cabins were maintained and beds were always made, several times a day. Dives were also amazing, we saw a lot of wildlife and received a video of our diving at the end of the week. Room for improvement: the cabins are - compared to other liveaboards we’ve done previously - very noisy during the night, measured 94dB with an app. Although we appreciated the video we felt that the guides could have done more “guiding”. We saw a lot of big stuff but at the times we drifted along the reefs would have appreciated being shown critters rather than mostly drifting on our own. We felt that the guides were often rather absorbed by their filming. As for the food a bit more variety of fresh veggies/salad would have been great (but understand this is difficult on a liveaboard).

Beautiful New Boat / Great Dives / Incredibly Helpful CrewVerified review

Really can not say enough great things about this boat and their crew. We have been lucky enough to stay with a few liveaboards across the globe and this one was at the very top. Brand new beautiful boat, super comfortable beds, big TV screens with a library of TV and Movie selections in each room. Spacious shower. Incredible sundeck and hot tub with the nicest outdoor / upper deck chairs and table setup we have ever seen. Coffee, juices and snacks available at all times of day and night. Free (as in $0) flowing alcohol after your dive days. But the real highlight was the crew. Most of the boat staff would come out as divers were preparing. Helping you with zip up wetsuits, rinsing cameras, gathering anything you may have forgot or left. Perhaps most impressive the crew had staff putting on your fins for you when you are in the pangas / smaller dive boats. Saved my back so much wear and tear! The dive deck was huge and spacious. No running into other divers while getting ready. Gabby and William were tremendous guides who went out of their way to try fine all the wild life that each guest said they really wanted to see at the beginning of the trip. Breakfast / Dinner and Lunch were done quite well and exceeded the meals we had on land in Galapagos / Ecuador. Highlights in March were : Mantas, Huge Schools of Hammerheads, Galapagos Sharks, all sorts of Reef Tip Sharks, Seahorses, giant schools of Barracuda and other fish, playful Sea Lions and even some pods of Dolphins! Without a doubt would come back to this boat again. A++
