Galapagos Live-Aboard Deals

deepblueUPDATE Nov. 4, 2010: Please visit our website for up-to date Galapagos liveaboard discounts in 2010 and 2011.

We are very pleased to be able to offer what very well could be this season’s only Last Minute Galapagos Live-Aboard specials and some exciting 2011 offers.  In March, the late great Alta ran aground and by June, all 2010 charters were cancelled.  This left so very many scrambling for live-aboard space in the Galapagos that everyone else ended up quite booked for the season.  But now, there are two Last Minute departures with what is perhaps the only elusive sighting in the Galapagos…a savings.

Aggressor – Dec. 16th. In celebration of the Aggressor Fleet’s 25th Anniversary, they are offering a 25% per person discount,a savings of over $1100.  Rates $3371.25 – $3521.25

Additionally, reserve and make your deposit on a space before Sept. 30, 2010 and you will receive a $400 discount for travel before Feb. 28, 2011.

Deep Blue – Oct. 18 – 25. $3495 lower deck / $3695 upper deck includes fuel surcharge…a savings of $500 pp.

Estrella del Mar -  Nov. 1 – 8.  $3495 plus fuel surcharge…a savings of $300 pp.

Humboldt Explorer – Buy 1 space, get 1 free!  $4295 rate = $2147.50 pp.  Now there is a rate that hasn’t been seen in the Galapagos for a long time. Offer valid for departures Dec. 13 – 20 and Jan. 3-10, 2011.

Also, the Humboldt Explorer is offering 3 free berths with a full charter from Jan. 15 – May 15, 2011 and/or buy one berth and get the second at a 50% discount. The Humboldt drops their rate from January until May to $3995.  So…when you buy 2 spaces, the total cost is $5992.50 from Jan. 15- May 15, 2011.

This year, due to  La Niña, the water temps in Galapagos are colder than normal which is perhaps why almost every week we are hearing reports of thousands, not hundreds, of hammerheads.  Last year, I was fortunate to dive Darwin and Wolf in both October and November.  Whale sharks were in double digits both times and in November,  well…read for yourself my Number 1 dive moment in 2009.

Get in touch with us if you are interested in either of these departures.
