This dive site is often one of the first dives completed by divers arriving in the Galapagos Islands and it is a great introduction to the area. The dive site is made up of a reef with a few boulders and some sandy bottom patches as well. It is often dived as part of the trip up to Darwin Island or Wolf Island.
Most divers stay within dive depths of around 12 and 18 metres. Currents here are mild and normally the dive site is generally calm.
There are many different types of marine life to be found here and divers should spend some time exploring the reef and boulder to try to spot as many as they can. Mobula rays are common on this site and divers often spot them swimming in groups, which is an unusual site. Sea slugs and nudibranchs are found in many different colours and shapes and they can be spotted along the reef. Divers will also probably see the areas signature shark – the hammerhead shark and Galapagos sharks are also found here. Sea lions, penguins, and marine iguanas are found here and they can be seen hunting the many fish found on the reef. Overall, it is a great dive and a great introduction to the types of divers to be expected in the region.
