Meet Imogen Simpson-Mowday our most recent addition to the Dive Diva Diary club. After a short break from diving, she refreshed her skills in Pemba last December in preparation for a trip of a lifetime to the Galapagos Islands this summer. Here is her story of a totally incredible nine days spent diving in and around the stunning Galapagos Islands.
Diving with Darwin: a diary of diving in The Galápagos
By Imogen Simpson-Mowday June 2010:
Darwin diving... would Darwin have taken the plunge and dived in the Galápagos? I smiled thinking of Darwin clad in neoprene as we headed off on a weeklong Galápagos trip courtesy of Red Mangrove. The company operates a range of luxury lodges on the islands of Santa Cruz, Isabela, Floreana and San Cristobal. Our trip was a bespoke alternative to the usual diving live-aboard. A land based trip, we would spend a few days on each island and enjoy wildlife trips, deluxe accommodation, top-class catering, SCUBA diving and snorkeling.
To dive in the Galápagos is to experience diving in one of the final frontiers of nature. I would dive with pelagic fish, huge shoals, large marine mammals, turtles, rays, plus a host of sharks.
