Beautiful video... The Galapagos marine life is just amazing and very diverse. It includes 16 species of whales; some of these species are the humpback, sperm, blue, and killer whales.

Most sea species like hammerhead sharks, sea Lions, tropical penguins, marine iguanas sea turtles and thousands of colorful fish can be seen all year round.

Excellent video of the Galapagos, very inspiring, congratulations
