Yes, the water was clear & blue when these particular shots were taken, but I have plenty of murky water shots from the Galapagos as well. There was a wide range in visibility from site to site, and current and visiblity could change radically at the same site in a short period of time. Much of the time, visibility was very California-like, in the 25-40ft range.

By the way, California divers are well-suited to diving in the Galapagos -- literally and figuratively. I was happy to have my dry suit for sites on the western exposures of the southerly islands, where the water temperature was in the low 60s. For the islands at the extreme north end of the archipelago, Wolf and Darwin, the water temperature was in the low 70s and my 7mm wet suit was just right.
