This is a great dive site within the Galapagos Islands and divers come here to see large schools of larger fish as well as sea birds diving into the water to hunt these fish. As part of the Galapagos national park, the area is full of marine life and some of the species here are not found anywhere else in the world. The dive site is made up of a rock that is exposed but then drops down to the sandy ocean bottom floor.

The dive site is quite shallow with depths between 6 metres and 23 metres. The currents are moderate but there can be a strong surge coming into the area. The water temperature is not as warm as other parts of the Galapagos Islands and ranges between 17C and 23C. The visibility is normally only 10 metres to 15 metres.

Divers are likely to spot large schools of snappers, grunts, and jacks. Other marine life to be found includes turtles, rats, sea stars, moray eels, and sometimes whale sharks. The sea birds of the island are boobies and three species are found here including the red footed and blue footed boobies. These birds frequently dive into the water to hunt fish and divers can take some amazing photographs of the birds diving into the water. They are joined by sea lions and marine iguanas that are also hunting the fish found here.
