Gordon Rocks is definitely a highlight for any diver visiting the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador. It is famous for hammerhead sharks, and lots of them! Not only that, but hammerheads around the Galapagos Islands are likely to get up close and personal with divers which can be a real treat for adrenaline seekers.

The site is teeming with reef life of all shapes, sizes and colours as well as regular sightings of octopi, fur seals and sea lions. A dive at Gordon Rocks is likely to boast a sighting of the now near threatened Galapagos shark, suffering as a result of excessive fishing and a slow reproductive rate.

Gordon Rocks is sometimes referred to as the ‘washing machine’ because of frequently strong currents and surge. That doesn’t stop a diverse range of marine life calling this submerged cone site home. Fish such as cardinal fish, king angelfish, hieroglyphic hawkfish and the white spotted flag cabrillas can all be seen at Gordon Rocks.

Divers can also encounter white tip reef sharks, marbled rays, sting rays and turtles at Gordon Rocks which is located on the north eastern side of the island, just a one-hour boat ride from the island of Santa Cruz.
