blue o two are delighted to offer customers the chance of a lifetime and dive the Galapagos with our resident project shark expert, Dr Elke Bojanowski.
The aim of Project Shark: Galapagos is to highlight the global issues facing sharks, with a Galapagos focus, as well as enjoying some of the most exciting dive sites the Galapagos Islands have to offer. The week will involve close encounters with sharks, rays and whale sharks (although these sightings cannot be guaranteed) with the possibility to observe them in their natural habitat.
As the endangered species list around the globe continues to grow, it is vital for those who are actively interested in the preservation of our marine environments and inhabitants to be given an opportunity to learn about efforts to protect our marine species. The Project Shark: Galapagos itinerary allows divers the unique opportunity to encounter endangered species in their own environment, providing an unparalleled opportunity to study their natural behaviour and aid future conservation efforts in support of marine conservation project with the Galapagos Conservation Trust. Dr Elke Bojanowski will conduct seminars giving divers the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the biology and behaviour of sharks.
While humans may find the water temperature a bit cooler and the currents a bit stronger, sharks tend to love these conditions. Schools of scalloped hammerheads are commonly seen, with a further 32 species of sharks known to frequent these waters, including whale sharks!
