This is a great dive for spotting the very strange looking red lipped batfish. This dive site is found on Wolf Island. This was named after a German naturalist named Theodor Wolf. These strange bottom dwelling fish are related to frogfish and they spend most of their time walking around and hoping around on the sandy bottom. It easier to spot them at night and divers often come back to this dive site for night dives.

This is not a very deep dive with a maximum depth of 21 metres. Visibility is usually only between 10 and 20 metres. There is only ever a light current with a mild surge in the shallower parts of the dive. This makes it a great dive for all level of divers and even beginner dives are able to dive here. The water at this dive site is normally much warmer and this means that there are a larger number of reef fish not found in other parts of the Galapagos.

Divers will be able to spot many different types of sharks here including white tip reef sharks and hammerhead sharks. Silky sharks have also been found here on many dives. Divers will also be able to spot mobula rays, eagle rays, stingrays, barracuda, and turtles. Other reef fish include scorpionfish, surgeonfish, frogfish, snappers, jacks, trumpet fish, coronet fish, wahoo, tuna, rainbow runners, Galapagos eel, and many more.
