This area is actually made up of two fantastic dive sites – a channel dive site and an open ocean dive site, both of which offer divers a chance to spot many different types of sharks and many pelagic fish.

The ocean side of the dive is made up of a rocky slope that then takes divers to a shallower area that is close to the island. This area is full of reef fish and pelagic fish including sharks. On this part of the dive, divers can expect to see hammerhead sharks, marlins, stingrays, marble rays, eagle rays, manta rays, and jacks. There are large schools of reef fish here and one amazing sight is watching the islands birds, the boobies, diving from above into the water to hunt for the fish. This is a fantastic thing to be able to watch from a divers point of view. Divers can also spot sea lions that come in from the island and swim around.

The channel side is also a fantastic dive and although it is not very deep, there can be some current. The maximum depth of this part of the dive is around 20 metres. Divers should use the currents to help navigate their dive and these will take divers quite quickly over the rocky area. There are always many fish found here and divers can normally spot Galapagos sharks here. There is a sandy patch around 15 metres where there is a colony of garden eels.

On both sites, divers should spot nudibranchs, cardinalfish, scorpionfish, burrfish, surgeonfish, frogfish, hawkfish, barracuda, turtles, sea stars, moray eels, marbled rays, stingrays, manta rays, eagle rays, and hammerhead sharks. The eagle rays often gather in large groups and traverse together across the channel. Overall, this makes for a fantastic day of diving.
