In the Winter of 2022, a group of 5 adventurers set out to see the great Galapagos Islands. San Cristobal Island, having recently been named the sister island of Maui, welcome the Maui Boating group with open arms and with high hope of a friendly relationship to come. The group stayed in the well equipped Deep Blue M/V for 8 Days and 7 nights.
Galapagos Master (Deep Blue) is a 32 metre vessel which underwent a complete interior refit to the highest standards in 2015, now sailing to some of the top dive sites in the Galapagos.
She welcomes a total of 16 divers on each live-aboard trip, maximixing safety and comfort for all guests on board. She features eight air-conditioned cabins spread across three decks with each cabin offering stunning views of the Galapagos archipelago. Each cabin has its own private en-suite bathroom with hot water, and ample storage room for all of your personal belongings. For your added convenience and flexibility, Galapagos Master offers cabins that can be used either as a twin or as a double bedded room.
The communal areas available to guests include a spacious indoor lounge on the middle deck. Relax and unwind from your day’s diving while watching your favorite movie or your latest underwater shots on the plasma screen television. The indoor dining area brings you a tantalizing array of mouth-watering meals, complimented by the adjacent cocktail bar. Photographers can take full advantage of the indoor camera set-up station which includes multiple charging points (US round pin plug). Additional storage drawers to the aft of the vessel mean that even photography charter groups will have no problem finding enough space for their equipment.
Galapagos Master’s top sun-deck ensures that sun worshippers can top up their tan while soaking up the Galapagos sights. Or, for those who prefer to relax out of the sun, the shaded upper level is an ideal location to chill out in cushioned lounge chairs and benches.
The steel vessel is steadier than most due to the fact that it has been designed to be lower to aid stability and speed. The boat has an official license to operate and organize diving activities in the Galapagos issued by the Ecuadorian government and the National Institute of the Galapagos ensuring you that all the safety tests have been passed as well as complying with the strict environmental rules of the park. With all the latest safety devices – GPS, VHF radios, satellite communication, two life rafts, emergency oxygen and AED – you will know you are traveling in total protection and safety.
