Diving

Your diving will encompass everything from sharks to nudibranchs, and more. The islands are best known for amazing shark diving around Wolf and Darwin Islands; your experience here will generally include Galapagos sharks, silky sharks, and lots of schooling hammerheads being cleaned by king angelfish. Seeing marine turtles, schools of tuna, eagle rays, and sea lions are very common, and seeing a whale shark is very possible from June through November. All the islands you travel to are amazing sites for underwater photography. Macro photographers will have their fill of sea horses, barnacle blennies, coral hawkfish, and many others. An abundance of rays is at many of the dive sites (including spotted rays, marble rays, golden rays, and stingrays) along with sea lions, sea turtles, schools of grunts, and snappers. The variety of life in the water is unlike any other place, with thick schools of the native brown striped Salema, snappers, groupers, Chevron barracuda, and huge sea turtles
