Michael AW & ONE expeditions cater exclusively for wildlife enthusiasts and underwater photographers. 90 percent of dive sites are thoroughly surveyed and proven popular with photographers and bio-diversity scientists. Because you will wish to be familiar with the animals and learn more about their behavior, some sites are dived 2 n3 times. Photographers will have plenty of opportunities to reload film and change lenses. Our land visits during our Gal-pagos expedition are at least 3 hours.
We restrict our numbers, which improves the quality of your marine life experience n animals are less likely to be frightened away. Photographers will have ample space for the optimum photo opportunities. Because we want you to enjoy the experience both underwater and above, we only select first class operations for accommodation, dive operations and live-aboards. However some of the best diving is in remote corners of the world, the operation may not be 5-star, but the service and diving will be.
