As the dive site name indicates, this is a sloping wall that as a great topography made up of many crevices, nooks and crannies, and small open spaces for divers to explore. This provides great protection for marine life and they have gathered here in large numbers. But like many dive sites in the Galapagos Islands, divers come here to see the large groups of hammerheads that patrol the deep blue of the wall.
The hammerheads can be found as singles swimming near to the wall, but they more often swim in a school when the current picks up. It is a remarkable sight to watch these large groups of sharks swimming together and this makes this site one of the best sites in the Galapagos Islands.
The hammerhead sharks are joined by many silky sharks, Galapagos sharks and eagle rays who are also found cruising around in the ocean. Whale sharks are spotted here regularly and they are joined by turtles, spotted eagle rays, and marbled rays.
The water here is warmer and so there are many different types of fish fond here including glass eye snapper, surgeon fish, salemas, bacalao, wahoo, tuna, barracuda, rainbow runners, schools of jack fish, trumpet fish, coronet fish, and spotted moray eels. As with most of the dive sites in the Galapagos Islands, sea lions also join in on the melee and can be found hunting in the waters around the wall.
