This is another great dive site for finding the resident sharks of the Galapagos Island. It is another one of the Wolf island dive sites and is a very popular site. Wolf Island is becoming an iconic dive spot and this dive site is no exception to the fantastic diving the area has to offer. Many divers come here to see whale sharks but the site is also populated by many other sharks, large pelagic fish, and reef fish.

Divers to the site need to be experienced for a number of reasons. The currents here can be very strong with some strong and harsh surge. The visibility here is also limited and divers will need to have experience and training in these conditions before diving here. The dive is normally only dived as part of a live aboard trip, as the island and dive site are far from any habited island. Divers should bring dive gloves or a dive hook so that they can hold onto the reef when the currents are particularly strong.

The sharks to expect to see here include the whale sharks swimming out in the deep blue, hammerhead sharks in large groups, silky sharks, and Galapagos sharks closer to the reef. Dolphins and turtles are also spotted here, as are Bluefin tuna, mobula rays, eagle rays, and reef fish in the thousands.
