    Situated in the Pacific Ocean some 1,000 km from the South American continent, these 19 islands and the surrounding marine reserve have been called a unique ‘living museum and showcase of evolution’. Located at the confluence of three ocean currents, the Galápagos are a ‘melting pot’ of marine species. Ongoing seismic and volcanic activity reflects the processes that formed the islands. These processes, together with the extreme isolation of the islands, led to the development of unusual animal life – such as the land iguana, the giant tortoise and the many types of finch – that inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection following his visit in 1835. Enjoy world class diving aboard the luxury liveaboard, the Tiburon Explorer. The TibEx has a professional crew providing 5 star service for up to 16 guests. Scuba divers will enjoy up to four thrilling dives each day. The brand new TibEx was designed for diver comfort and features dive platforms, fresh water showers, equipment rentals and plenty of gear storage, Nitrox, two dive masters and fresh warm towels after every dive. The TibEx takes scuba divers to the best dive sites including Wolf and Darwin Islands where Galapagos sharks, hammerheads, turtles, schools of tuna, manta rays, whale sharks and white tip sharks can be found.
