Welcome to our 'Travel EmOcean'-Podcast!


With this podcast we want to create a platform where we can talk about all topics related to travel, diving, Galapagos, conservation and the ocean in general. You can hear about the best travel guide information in South America from a local person, find out all the great options you might want to visit or you get important dive tips and avoid taking the wrong gear to Galapagos. The topic variety is huge and hopefully will grow with your questions. A travel & diving guide for South America free of charge!


Every other week you will get a new episode of 'Travel EmOcean' where we talk about this variety of topics.


Jonathan was the last 30 years tour guide in many South American countries including dive guide in Galapagos. He will probably give you many inside tips which you might not find in a travel guide.

Jenny always loved traveling and traveled as woman alone through South America what is in her opinion not a issue at all.

Certain questions, e.g. which wetsuit do you need in Galapagos, needs to be discussed from a 'man' and a 'woman' perspective.


So use this opportunity to ask us YOUR question HERE!
