Itinerary Overview

Are you ready? Let's start your lifetime experience!

Depart Heathrow to Guayaquil. Check in at the Sonesta Hotel where you will be centrally located in Guayaquil, steps from Plaza del Sol and minutes from Mall del Sol Commercial Center.

This is where your diving adventure begins!

Once you get to Baltra Island you will be transferred to your liveaboard the Galapagos Aggressor III where you will be on-board for 6 days. The Galapagos Aggressor was built for spectacular diving journeys around the Galapagos Islands offering some of the most respected and successful diving trips around the islands.

Enjoy your diving!

After disembarking you will have the opportunity of visit the highlands of Santa Cruz & Charles Darwin Research Station where can be seen Giant Tortoise in their natural habitat. Time to get ready to do the check in Red Mangrove Eco Luxury Hotel. The Red Mangrove Hotel is located at the waterfront and is surrounded by both Galapagos wildlife and mangroves on Santa Cruz Island. From the oceanfront deck there are daily displays of wildlife and from the hotel’s private deck and restaurant area, incredible panoramic scenes of the Galapagos Islands can be enjoyed.

Enjoy your experience!

Bartholomew is an island surrounded by turquoise waters and beautiful beaches. It will take about 2 hours to arrive by boat. Upon arrival, the tour begins by climbing the boardwalk and staircase. When you reach the top you will see a spectacular landscape. Sullivan Bay and the famous Pinnacle Rock can be seen clearly from here.

The island is a now extinct volcano with a variety of red, orange, green, black and shiny volcanic formations. This is the perfect place to observe Galapagos penguins. Moreover, you can snorkel with sea turtles, sharks, white-tip reef sharks, tropical fish, sea lions and many other unique marine species. After lunch, you will visit Sullivan Bay. Here you can see some amazing lava formations, the product of a volcanic eruption in 1903. This is an excellent example of the typical forms and colors that contrast with older types of lava.

What a wonderful experience!

You’ll be picked up at the hotel and transferred to the Itabaca Channel to board the yacht that will take you to North Seymour Island. This place is great for hiking. There is a circular path about 2 miles long that crosses the interior of the island and allows you to explore the rocky coastal path. On this trail, you will be able to discover some of the largest seabird colonies in the Galapagos Islands.

Get ready to one of the most popular tours!

The bay tour, also known in Spanish as “Tour de Bahía”, is a must do in the Galapagos. This tour combines snorkeling, hiking, learning more about the islands and a bit of relaxing too. During the tour, you will visit fascinating spots like the “Lobería” and “Las Grietas”.

Check out and begin your journey home

After a complete breakfast at the Galapagos Habitat, you will be transferred to the ferry that will take you back to Baltra airport for your flight back to mainland Ecuador.

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).

Dwyer K

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.

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!!
