Galapagos Photo Trip discount - Galapagos Master

03 August 2015 - 10:29 AM

I have booked an extended 10-day photo trip with BlueWater Photo (led by Scott Gietler), which I have to cancel due to personal reasons.

The trip is on the newly refurbished luxurious Galapagos Master, and runs from May 9-19, 2016.

The trip offers 50% more dives than on a standard 7-day trip and extra time at Darwin plus 3 land visits.

TImed for hammerheads, mantas, marine iguanas - better visibility and warmer water temps than later in the year.

Standard price is $6250 USD, but I am willing to discount.

If you are intersted in taking my spot, please PM me.

Galapagos "naturalist" cruise after liveaboard?

21 July 2015 - 03:36 PM

I've booked a 10-day dive trip next year on the Galapagos Masters, and since this is a "once-in-a-lifetime" location, am considering doing a "naturalist" cruises (e.g. 8 day island hopping on a 16-20 passenger boat) either before or after the dive trip.  The dive itinerary WILL include a few land visits, but they are very limited.  The "naturalist" cruises do include more land visits, but are highly regulated by the Ecuadorian government (like the dive itineraries), so passengers aren't able to wander about on their own.  But I am hoping they will offer additional photo ops more than what the dive trip includes.  If anyone has any feedback on vessels or itineraries they can recommend, I'd appreciate it, especially if photographer-friendly.   Thanks!
