Excellent guiding and good times

Among the best Liveaboards I've been. Great knowledgeable guides on anything from the birth of Galapagos Islands to South American politics to diving of course. Balanced schedule across the islands, excellent briefings, strict safety training for above and below surface. And of course, the awe inspiring Galapagos nature. Looking to come back.

Wonderful experience

Diving was fabulous--great spots well briefed. Crew accommodated my weak knee by helping me gear up in panga and were extremely patient--made me feel very well looked after. It was clear everyone wanted passengers to have best experience possible. More merchandise in store is the only suggestion I would make, but that is a very minor quibble on whole, exceptional service!

Trip of a lifetime

I spend 7 days on the master galapagos in november/December 2019 and it was a trip of a lifetime. The diving was out of this world and we saw exactly what was expected on each dive, including Schools of Hammerheads white tips, black tips and galapagos sharks, manta rays, seals, iguanas and much much more. The guides were brilliant and full of information and help.
The boat was lovely, very spacious and every single crew member was so helpful and always there. Food and drink was great. Highly recommended trip, a must do! Thanks to all the staff.

Great trip. Great crew. Great boat. Great wildlife.

Darwin delivered. Weather was kind so conditions were good.
Wolf was also brilliant.
Unlucky with Molas at Vincente Roca, but dive there & Cabo Douglas were still good.
We ticked off the main shows- so that was good.
And crossing was kind.
Crew were excellent at taking care of us & getting us around. Great job by all on Deep Blue.

Excellent itinerary, excellent guides, good service

I had a great experience with Galapagos Master (Deep blue boat). The itinerary was perfect. The professional dive guides (Jeff and Denny) really knew what they were doing to make sure we had great experience. The boat crews, despite encountering some difficulties, still tried their best to deliver their best services. Overall it's a good trip and I recommended this boat.

Fantastic trip

Fantastic diving, lots of life; Hammerheads, Galapagos sharks, marine iguana, mantas, spotted rays, seals and many more. Favourite site had to be with the marine iguanas. Both the guides were brilliant; finding marine life and making sure we were alright . All the other staff were brilliant too, always very helpful and attentive. Couldn't have had better week.

Too expensive

I thought 4 dives per day were a lot considering that the water temperature was pretty cold. Best dive was with the iguanas

fabulous diving

The diving was spectacular. Franklin was spectacular -he was always helping and attentive and I felt like I was in good hands diving with him.
the plumbing onboard was in disrepair as were the zodiac.s Myself and the zodiac captain had a near miss of being smashed onto the rocky shore at Darwin Arch because the motor quit

GOOD OVERALL

Trip was a good overall.

What went well. The boat crew was very friendly and helpful. Especially the Panga drivers, dinning room crew (Juan) and the cabin (Angel) crew. Angel and Juan were most helpful on the dive deck and in the boat Everything you would expect on a liveaboard was present

What I would change... the dive masters were inconsistent. Both were freelance and not full time. One (Jesse) was very helpful, communicative and friendly. The other (Geoffrey) was the opposite. Dive briefings were less than helpful and not complete to prepare divers. This behavior held true for in the water as well. On one advanced dive in Wolf, Geoffrey left divers feeling alone and unsafe.

The cabins were Ok, but dated the linens were worn and old. Sheets and towels hand rust and holes in them there was also a lack of towel rods to dry the towels, so the cabins were damp and towels wet.

Amazing trip with an amazing crew!

His was the first liveaboard trip for my wife and I... and we are now completely spoiled. The diving is spectacular, wildlife abounds throughout the archipelago. Our crew and dive guides were friendly, professional and really made he trip something to remember forever. They took great care of the divers and ensured the dives were good for everyone.

epic trip

The whole trip was amazing. Some of the dives were boring Darwin arch was getting old after 8 dives there. But all in all every dive was unique in its own way. One minor thing I didn't like was the dingy driver was trying to get the attention of another dingy and not paying attention to us in the water while trying to hand up gear. The cooks and boat crew were amazing. Jesse and Daniel were awesome guides and let us have freedom in our dives. They are great spotters.

overpriced for what you get but amazing dives

Diving is unlike anywhere in the world. Boat is old and the trip is expensive for what you get compared to other liveaboards elsewhere in the world. Crew was not on top of their game. Very nice people but service was not commensurate with the cost.

The dives require experience with cold water and currents and I would not suggest this for a diver without specific experience in similar conditions. The guides will not give much individual attention and with so, dives uncomfortable situations can occur when divers have different experience levels and air consumption.
