Scuba Diving Galapagos Master Takes Maiden Cruise

Galapagos Master Takes Maiden Cruise


Worldwide Dive and Sail recently completed the maiden cruise of the completely refurbished and refitted M/V Galapagos Master liveaboard ship.

In November 2014, Worldwide Dive and Sail began a full refit and modernization of the ship — previously known as the Deep Blue — which concluded last month.

Worldwide Dive and Sail General Manager Mark Shandur and 15 other guests sailed aboard the M/V Galapagos Master on her maiden trip last month.

“The diving in the Galapagos is some of the most unique in the world, and we were anxious to jump into the water and experience Darwin’s playground,” Shandur said.

During the trip, guests dove among hammerheads, schooling fish, huge groupers, marble and spotted eagle rays, enormous turtles and sea lions. On land, they saw the amazing wildlife that the islands have to offer: blue footed boobies, frigate birds and iguanas.

The M/V Galapagos Master is the first of a new fleet of liveaboard dive ships called “Master Liveaboards.”

The company will be offering seven- and 10-night itineraries year-round aboard the M/V Galapagos Master, and will cover the May-to-November “whale shark season” as well as the December-to-April “manta ray season.”

Rates for the seven-night cruises start at US$4750. To book a reservation, email Master Liveaboards at [email protected] or visit the company’s website by clicking here.
