7 nights aboard the Galapagos Sky

What a fantastic holiday we had . Walls of sharks, millions of morays, tons of turtles, sealions, seahore, batfish, frogfish,penguins,iguana and tortoise to name just a few. Jon enjoyed his birthday cake at the Sonesta and is now enjoying New Zealand. This was my first time to the Galapagos Islands and it lived up to expectations below the waves and ashore. Galapagos Sky if a fine boat and provided us with all home comforts. The crew were brilliant and really took care of us diving and eating. The kitchen prepared special vegetarian meals for me. Pirates night was very entertaining and great fun.
