Stays in Florida but now runs a Galapagos Live Aboard Dive Boat

In the last issue of Diver Magazine, travel editor Stephen Weir revealed that Live Aboard Dive Boat operator Peter Hughes had sold his industry leading Peter Hughes Dive operation. One month after that article appeared Hughes told Weir that he has left the employ of Wayne B. Brown, the current owner of Peter Hughes Diving and the principal owner of the Agressor Fleet.

His immediate responsibility will be to handle the affairs of the M/V Galapagos Sky (formerly Sky Dancer), ensuring the continued high standard of operation. Hughes says there is possible product expansion in the future. Hughes has also re-established his long-standing relationship with Scubapro, the dive manufacturing company “of first choice,” according to Hughes.

The M/Y Galapagos Sky, is owned by Ecoventura, a small yacht expedition company operating solely in the Galapagos Islands. Santiago Dunn, president and owner of Ecoventura, is an owner-partner, along with Hughes in DivEncounters, Inc.
