Cabu Marshall

Galapagos National Park, Galapagos Islands

Hammerheads and mantas are a common sight. Chevron barracuda, snappers, groupers and occasionally thick schools of the endemic brown-striped salema are part of the resident underwater fauna. The infrequent presence of oceanic white tipped sharks, blue and black marlin makes this a dive with lots of potential surprises.

Bartolome

Galapagos National Park, Galapagos Islands

Situated just off the east coast of Santiago Island, Bartolome is instantly distinguished by the huge tower of rock off its northern coast. The Pinnacle and the narrow isthmus divide the island in two. Here a wonderful sandy beach is a favourite nesting site for green turtles.

Our coldest yet rapidly increasing favorite dive – steep, deep vertical wall covered in soft coral, sponges, and endemic black coral. Regular sightings of mola mola (oceanic sun fish,) sea horses, bullhead sharks, red lipped bat fish, various shrimp and many other marine invertebrates. Keep your eyes open for fly bys from the flightless cormorants, penguins and maybe even a marine iguana. Our after-dive panga ride offers great topside photo ops for penguins, flightless cormorants, marine iguanas, sea lions, blue footed & nazca booby Birds, magnificent frigates and noddy terns.
