The newest addition to the Peter Hughes fleet, Sky Dancer
is a 100ft long 16-passenger dive boat designed specifically with
the diving and sea conditions of the Galapagos in mind. A high bow,
wide beam and powerful engines make her manouverable and rugged
in even the roughest of seas.
Her main deck consists of a forward lounge for relaxing
between dives, with TV, VCR, hifi and other electronic toys for
those who can't bear to be away from them! Astern of the lounge
is the galley and dining area, and at the back of the boat is the
large shaded dive deck. with indivdual tank racks, gear storage
bins, camera tabels and charging facilties.
On the upper deck are 4 air-conditioned master staterooms
with either a queen ded or two single beds, private en suite bathroom
and large picture windows offering panoramic views. At the stern
on the upper deck is a large shaded deck for those who wish to relax
in the open air without getting a tan. On the upper deck is a huge
sun deck for those who do!
Forward on the lower deck are the other 4 deluxe cabins,
each with two single beds, and en suite bathrooms. Portholes allow
in natural light. Crews quarters act as a sound barrier between
the guests cabins and the engine rooms, making this a very quiet
below deck location!
Diving is done from two tenders as the sea and diving
conditions do not make for easy diving "mothership-style".
Sky Dancer has two 21ft zodiacs each with stainless steel
ladder, and 4 stroke engines. The tenders comfortably accommmodate
8 guests, 2 dive guides and driver.
Sky Dancer is a fabulous dive boat with an
enviable crew and reputation.
She, and the Galapagos Aggressors are, in
our opinion, the only true live-aboard dive vessels in the Galapagos
