  • Testimonials

    1) - "I can’t say enough about the Nortada! We didn’t experience any of the ill effects of El Nino that others have described. We were rather impressed with the amount of wildlife we saw, but then again, who wouldn’t be impressed with the Galapagos? Everything about the Nortada is pleasantly cozy. experienced. The food is greatcrew helping things along. I can’t wait to recommend the Nortada to all of my diving friends!"

    2)- "What a fantastic trip! We spent 7 nights on the Nortada and loved every minute. The diving is out of this world. The boat is in great condition and the staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We can’t recommend this trip enough!"

    3)" Hi there! I just want to discuss the quality of the Nortada here. We saw so much including countless mantas, schooling hammerheads, Galapagos sharks and various stingrays. We even saw a humpback whale in the water!! While diving in the Galapagos was magic, the dive masters really made the experience wonderful. The briefings were always detailed, and when divers were separated by the heavy current, the pangas were always available to come and get them. The food was great too, even for the vegetarians on board, and the crew was up for anything. They tried to fulfill every request. I had a wonderful week on board the Nortada!"
