      Diving Wolf & Darwin
      3 - 5Days

      Diving Wolf & Darwin

      You’ll spend the next three days diving the legendary islands of Wolf and Darwin.

      Arguably Wolf and Darwin are the best dive sites in the world. Whale sharks are common here from Mid-May through November. At The Arch at Darwin, you will see hammerhead sharks. Bottlenose dolphins are also common. The reef contains many species of fish found nowhere else in the Islands.

      Darwin Island: Considered by many experienced divers as the very best dive site in the world, The Arch at Darwin fulfils its famous reputation. It is warmer by a few degrees than the central islands. In one single dive you can find schooling hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, large pods of dolphins, thick schools of skipjack and yellow fin tuna, big eye jacks, mobula rays, and silky sharks. From June to November, it is possible to see whale sharks in numbers of up to eight different individuals. The occasional presence of tiger sharks, black and blue marlin, and killer whales make this a unique diving experience.

      Wolf Island: A magical location, with several dive sites to choose from. If you want to see sharks, you have come to the right place. This is the place for schooling hammerhead sharks, large groups of Galapagos sharks, and if you are lucky, whale sharks. Seeing dolphins, large schools of tuna, spotted eagle rays, barracudas, sea lions and sea turtles is common. The bottom is littered with hundreds of moray eels, many of them free swimming. On a night dive here you will also be able to watch the red lipped bat fish walk along the bottom of the sea!

      On the western side of Isabela Island, you can expect to see Galapagos penguins, marine iguanas, flightless cormorants, sea lions, seahorses, sea turtles, horn sharks, red lipped batfish, occasional hammerhead sharks and white tip sharks, and much more. Punta Vincente Roca steep, with its deep vertical wall covered in soft coral, sponges, and endemic black coral.
