scubadivingnomad - 10/30/2016 3:15 AM
Galapagos Islands is one of the best remote liveaboard destinations in the world. While there are some resorts they are mostly located in the central islands, those around San Cristobal Island.

The island chain has two airports one on Baltra island and one on San Cristobal Island. It is important to insure what island your liveaboard is l...

I struggled with how to categorize this article. I mean I have been to many countries with the sole reason for my trip revolving around diving. You can read all about those places in my profile, that’s not my reason for this article. Part of me hesitates in writing this as part of me wants to keep this local "gem" to myself; but that’s not what this site is about. Had it not been for one of the members on here, I would have never been introduced to this special place myself. Maclearie Park, Belm...
