Additional Information

A diving holiday to the Galapagos or the Cocos Islands is right at the top of any diver’s bucket list so imagine a trip combining these two amazing destinations? Heaven on earth…

The Galapagos Islands is a legendary Ecuadorian diving destination often considered by experienced divers to represent something of a pinnacle in their diving careers. In that sense, many agree that the Galapagos Islands have, quite simply, the best liveaboard diving cruises in the world, plus incredible non-diving wildlife adventure cruises.

Costa Rica is the perfect destination for a mix of pelagic diving and rainforest exploration. Situated in the Golden Triangle, 550 km off the mainland of Costa Rica, the converging nutrient-rich currents from nearby deep water attract multitudes of pelagic action to Cocos Island. The area has been a UNESCO site since 1997 protecting the unique environment.


Itinerary Overview

Your adventure starts with a flight out of the UK to Costa Rica.

Fly from London Heathrow at 22:40 to Bogota at 03:50. From Bogota your connecting flight will depart at 06:10 and arrive at 07:30 at Juan Santamaria International Airport.

On arrival you will be transferred to the Holiday Inn Escazu where you will spend the first night.

After an early transfer from San Jose to Puntarenas you will board the Amazing Okeanos Aggressor for a 10 night diving expedition.

The land transfer from San Jose to Puntarenas takes approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. Once you arrive Puntarenas board the Okeanos Aggressor I and set on your 36-hour journey to the beautiful Cocos Island.

The Okeanos Aggressor I is a real treat for those of you with the constitution to take on such a trip. Cocos is most suitable for experienced divers. But well worth it for the schools of pelagic.

If you think you had an amazing diving experience already, wait to see what we have in the bag for you with the Galapagos Islands.

After disembarking the Okeanos Aggressor I, you will be transferred to San Jose for your flight to Guayaquil. Fly from Guayaquil at 17:00 to El Salvador International Airport arriving at 18:15. You will then get your connecting flight at 20:10 arriving Guayaquil at 00:15.

Spend the night at the beautiful Sonesta Hotel where you will be centrally located in Guayaquil, steps from Plaza del Sol and minutes from Mall del Sol Commercial Centre.

The Galapagos Aggressor will make this part of the trip one to remember.

You will take fly to the Galapagos. Once you arrive you will be transferred to the Galapagos Aggressor III liveaboard. The Galapagos Aggressor was built for spectacular diving journeys around the Galapagos Fly to Baltra in the Galapagos islands to board the Galapagos Aggressor III. This boat was built with spectacular diving journeys in mind offering some of the most respected and successful diving trips around the islands.

Just like aboard any other Aggressor boat, the experienced captain, friendly crew, professional naturalists and dive masters will lead you through the trip whilst helping with any questions or queries you may have regarding the diving, meals or the boat.

It is time to start the dreadful journey home but one that will leave you with a lot of good memories.

After a short flight from Baltra to Guayaquil you will start your international journey at 17:23 in direction to Bogota arriving 19:13. The connecting flight will depart at 22:55 and arrive Heathrow at 15:35 the next day.

Liquid Resort Dumaguete

We have just returned from two weeks at Liquid in Dumagete, the resort was excellent in every respect our room was spacious had all the facilities we required and was kept spotlessly clean. The food was excellent and the bar/catering facilities very informal with attentive and friendly service. The diving was not the most testing we have done but was very enjoyable both from the boat or from the shore, the area is certainlky worth a visit if you want to see frog fish, they are everywhere all sizes and colours not sure we had a dive when we didnt see some. Apo island was well woth bthe long boat ride the corals among the best we have ever seen. The dive centre staff, the guiodes and the boat (and Jeep) crews were all knowledgeable friendly and looked after us very well (i still find it hard to stand back while someone else insists on sorting out my gear for me). ll in all a brilliant holiday and we will be retuning. Thje arrangements by Ultimate Diving from booking up to our return home were as usualm impecable with all our requirements being met and our expectations exceeded.

Nick & Jo C

Philippines Twin Centre

We have just returned from our diving holiday in the Philippines booked through Ultimate Diving. Gail, our contact at Ultimate was extremely helpful and patient, making sure we got the right holiday planned, making brilliant suggestions and answering all our never-ending questions (sorry Gail we just couldn’t believe we each had 46KG luggage allowance).

Atlantis Dumaguete

We had a fantastic 11-night stay at Atlantis Dumaguete. The resort itself was very good – lovely food, almost all waiter-served with a different menu every day; beautiful gardens and a lovely beach; and a very good and extremely reasonable spa. The dive centre couldn’t do enough for me; they were happy to run local boat dives for a single diver, were very good a critter-spotting, and did all the carrying of equipment, and washed all my gear for me at the end of the holiday.

Roberts A

El Gouna Red Sea

El Gouna was excellent, lovely marinas surrounded by bars, cafes and restaurants with pavement seating, no lads culture with super diving. Excellent value for money The destination met my expectations Ground organisation went smoothly Captains Inn is the best low cost hotel I have stayed in for Egypt Dive centre was friendly and professional making the overall experience a wonderful holiday. A relaxed resort ideal for families, couples and those just wanting to dive with a noticeable reduction in bars thumping out music, live sport and stag/hen runs, let that stay in Sharm el sheikh, when it opens. An abundance of dive sites with the best reefs I have seen in a long time.

Malapascua and Dumaguete

Our 2 centre diving holiday in the Philippines, organised by Marcelina Jesus from Ultimate Diving, was faultless and well thought out, it was only the local weather conditions, road infrastructures and our lack of speaking the local language that prevented it from being 100% for us. However the centres and Marcelina’s organisation were faultless. The things seen at the diving sites went beyond all Expectations of the diver with the dive guides pointing out small life which could easily have been missed by me.

Morgan R

Truk Master, BLR & Tokyo

Having used Ultimate Dive for many years I will never use another company. Attention to detail, accuracy, support and dedication are a few words to summarise. Marcelina is dedicated to the client and goes beyond what is expected to ensure a perfect experience.

Sandra & Kim

Cobalt Coast Resort

A comfortable, friendly hotel, and a first class dive team. The best organised boat-diving we’ve ever done. I would give the whole holiday a 9, brilliant!

Wilsher J

10 days on board the Okeanos Aggressor

If you’re looking for a tour operator who is efficient, knowledgeable and super organised, Marcelina , Ultimate Diving is the place to go! Pre-trip, nothing was too much trouble, and the trip itself? Amazing. Every little detail was taken care of, and of course, the diving was incredible.

Amy S

Truk Master and BLR

The diving. Well what can I say. For anyone who enjoys diving wrecks, I fail to see how this coud be beaten. Up to 4 dives per day, I did 30 dives John 32 out of a possible 34. Average depths 30 – 40 meters. The conditions made the diving very easy. No current, good viz, (though the sea itself was often quite milky) easy bouancy and good dive guides. All this made decompression almost a pleasure. Clarity of the water inside the wrecks was incredible and with the help of Dave our guide we penetrated deep into the wrecks including a number of enine rooms. John has become an engine room junkie. So I think you will have guessed that this was one of my best dive holidays ever.

Paul, M

10 days Shark Diving in South Africa & Mozambique

Greg and I had a great 10 days and felt that the holiday was extremely good value for money. The way that Scuba Addicts work with the two different venues really worked with the different diving and the last day also gave us the opportunity to see lists of wildlife such as hippos, giraffes, zebras, eagles, crocs and was a perfect end to the week. Everything worked very well, transfers etc. The hospitality from all the staff at all 3 venues was excellent and they went out of they’re way to keep us amused!!
