Here is a link to my trip report from our trip last September to Quito and the Galapagos Islands aboard the Aggressor II liveaboard.

And here is a link to a 5 minute video of our dives with whale sharks at Darwin's Arch.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for the time to post the pictures and the information.
