Galapagos animals 1050 Sp ExpThe custom itinerary will include everything you've always longed to see ... or to see again.  You'll dive amongst the awe-inspiring hordes of hammerheads which prowl the waters around Darwin & Wolf.   Add to those silky sharks, enormous Galapagos sharks, eagle rays, manta rays & mola-mola …. sea turtles, giant morays and schooling fish in the thousands …

Then, too, you’ve got black coral with plenty of macro life - seahorses, blennies, nudibranchs, hawkfish and frogfish.  Everyone loves the enigmatic sea iguanas, the penguins racing around at full speed and playful sea lions.

Don't forget the extraordinary land animals of the Galapagos   ... the blue-footed & red-footed boobies ... the marine iguanas & land iguanas ... the penguins (yes, penguins !) ... the giant tortoises ... the flightless cormorants ... and more ... which so fascinated Charles Darwin.

No diver can deny the startling sensation of their first whale shark sighting, especially the well-fed behemoths of the eastern Pacific Ocean.

With the convergence of three oceanic currents, the water temperatures and plankton life are ideal for whale sharks from June to November.  A bevy of fish species accompany them on their migration adding to the excitement.

Encounters with these animals are the apex Galapagos moments for many divers.
