Come and discover why Galapagos is mecca in the world of diving! The Galapagos Marine Reserve is a sanctuary with as many unique marine species below the water as above. 4 oceanic currents converge in Galapagos to produce this incredible abundance of marine life. We have whale sharks, hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, Manta rays, eagle rays, sting rays, sea lions, fur seals, sea horses and sea turtles as well as enormous schools of both pelagic and tropical fish. For anyone who has ever dived the Galapagos, why it is 1 of the 7 Underwater Wonders of the World is obvious. Topside visitors to Galapagos only see half of the wonders in Galapagos.
Diving spot:Kicker Rock (San Cristobal Island)
This iconic Galapagos side is an eroded volcano, now 2 rocks rising 500 feet up out of the sea and resembling what locals called a ‘sleeping lion’, thus it’s other name, Leon Dormido. As majestic as it is to see topside, under- neath is equally impressive. The water is clear and sightings include: Eagle Rays, Galapagos sharks, Hammer- heads, Sea Turtles, Starfish and a variety of tropical reef fish. The outside walls are ablaze in color, rare in the Galapagos. Ledges, cubby holes and coral shield octopus, turtles, eels and other marine life.
