Wolf Island is an area with around six different dive sites that offer some of the best diving in the Galapagos Islands and in the world. It is in the far north-west of the Galapagos Islands and is about 350 km from the main island of San Cristobal. It is one of the most famous areas for diving in the islands and along with Darwin Island, it makes up the main place where liveaboard dive trips are based.

Divers will just need to see the many underwater photographs of the area to understand why it is one of the best dive spots in the world. There are huger numbers of fish to be found in all of the dive sites and the biomass of these fish is stunning even for the most experienced divers.

The island was named after a German naturalist called Theodoro Wolf who was one of the early explorers of the islands. Darwin Island is further north than Wold Island and so Wolf Island is normally dived after Darwin. It would be hard to have a bad day diving at this amazing dive location, as the numbers of hammerheads alone are just remarkable. On top of this, divers can also expect encounters with Galapagos sharks, silky sharks, many different types of rays, and pods of dolphins. Added to this, the area is full of sea lions, sea birds, and penguins and these often join in on the dive as the hunt for fish. The dives around the island are definitely unique and probably some of the best diving in the world.
