    New Galapagos Aqua - 7 nights to Darwin & Wolf from Baltra. Intro rate all cabins $3195. Maximum 16 divers in 9 cabins with private ensuite facilities. Nitrox available at $150. Good value Tourist class option. Has just spent two months in the yard and has been extensively refitted with new engines, compressors and refurbished cabins. Her first dive trip will be April 2 and the first few trips are now fully booked. She is offering a special intro rate of $3195 for April 30-May 7, then $3495 for May and June, then after that regular rates of $3995 lower deck and $4195 for upper deck. No fuel surcharge. We will keep you posted on initial trips but we expect this boat to fill the gap for a more affordable, reliable and professionally run, budget dive operation to Darwin & Wolf. Please feel welcome to contact us for details.

    Dom, do you have any pics of the "new" Aqua liveaboard? Curious to see the upgrades.

    Hi guys - should have new images soon. Naturally they do not want to put out the final images until she is gleaming but with first trip just over a month away, I think we will have them shortly. Here is some of the recent communications we had and I am awaiting an update.

    The Aqua is progressing well:

    - Brand new engines are installed. We have also given major maintenance to the propellers and they are at maximum size to give major propulsion to the yacht and have a good cruising speed.

    - The new cabin has been built on the upper deck, it is a nice and spacious cabin, it will have a queen size bed. Also the main deck cabin in front of the lounge will get a queen size bed. Of course all ensuite.

    - We have extended the upper deck at the stern of the yacht, here we will implement a nice outside lounge and bar. The bar that used to be in the lounge will be removed to have a more spacious area with better seating during the guides' briefings for 16 pax.

    - The compressors that used to be at the stern of the upper deck have now been replaced in the lower deck, just below the diving platform.

    - The diving platform will be further improved with central dry table, better seating and facilities for divers.

    - The cabins have been re-fitted and will have a fresh new look, as well as the lounge and dining area.

    - The sundeck has already been extended to its full size and will have additional space for pax with some loungers for relaxation and enjoying of course the great panoramic views.

    - Brand new diving equipment, extra tanks, safety equipment such as Nautilus lifelines we discussed at Dema.

    - Hope to get you images shortly.
