Hello Everyone,

 

Went diving in the Galapagos in August for the first time, and boy was that an interesting destination!  We pretty much saw everything...Really a spectacular trip, above and below water. 

 

One dive, which has to be one of the most unique I have ever done/heard of...is the Marine Iguana dive.  During a certain hour of the day, the Marine Iguanas head to the ocean from the land and swim and eat the seaweed and algae.  Hundreds of them are in the water.  Really a fun dive...cold but fun!  We lucked out with excellent visibility, which is not typically the case in this particular dive.

 

Here is a video I put together of it.  Please feel free to Share or Like it.  Also, any comments good or bad are welcome.

Enjoy,

 

Dustin

Nicely done!

 

It is such an amazing adaptation to see these reptiles filling such an unusual and dangerously narrow niche.

Thanks Allison!  It was certainly an interesting thing to see, that is for sure.
