The Humboldt Explorer comfortably accommodates 16 passengers in 8 air-conditioned rooms, all of which have private bath and shower facilities. Most cabins can be arranged to provide two twin beds or one large bed depending on guest needs. All cabins have flat screen televisions and windows to maximize the view of the Pacific Ocean and Galapagos Archipelago. Cabins are located on the main and lower decks. The air-conditioned salon on the main deck includes dining tables, TV, CD/DVD, video library and lounge area.
A partially covered sundeck with jacuzzi and ample seating areas is located on the top level, and a salon including a lounge area, a spacious dive deck with a large camera table are just some of the features.
The dive deck is equipped with individual gear bins, large camera table, recharging station, air and nitrox filling stations, tank racks, and a separate fresh water rinse tank for underwater camera equipment. Diving operations are conducted from two large pangas (tenders), easily boarded from the dive deck. The Humboldt Explorer is also equipped with a satellite telephone for emergency calls worldwide.
Diving the Galapagos can be challenging, but the rewards are great - schooling hammerheads, Galapagos sharks, whale sharks, mantas and myriad other pelagics frequent these waters. Nature's bounty is not confined to the waters, of course - Charles Darwin's work concentrated largely on the rare terrestrial ecosystems, which abound with flora and fauna unique to the archipelago.
The wonders of the Galapagos diving experience will be with you for a lifetime. Few will have the opportunity of diving some of the most remote and pristine seas in the world. No other place on Earth boasts such a variety of sea and land life. Your seven nights and eight days will be filled with memories to last a lifetime - thrilling dives, exotic vistas - and these will be only a small part of your experience. Our Galapagos National Park guides have a wealth of knowledge about these unique volcanic islands and are ready to share their experience with every guest, as well as provide you with the customer service and all of the amenities for which the Explorer Ventures Fleet is known.
