Top Places to Visit in the Galapagos – Wolf and Darwin
March 3, 2011 § Leave a comment
Our number 3 choice for top places to visit in the Galapagos is the water surrounding Wolf and Darwin Islands. The northernmost islands in the Galapagos, these islands are approximately 12 – 15 crossing from the central islands and can only be visited while aboard a Galapagos diving cruise.
Entering the waters here divers will see hundreds of hammerhead sharks, there are pods of bottle nose dolphins, Galapagos sharks, spotted eagle and manta rays, fur seals, sea turtles, there are schools of pelagic fish like tunas, barracudas, and rainbow runners. Marine life abounds here. Seasonally from June to November Whale Sharks can be encountered in large numbers.
Most cruises spend 3 days in the area allowing divers to take in all the area has to offer. Though diving in Galapagos is wonderful – the waters surrounding Wolf and Darwin offers some of the best diving in the world. It is the waters surrounding Wolf and Darwin that readers of Rodale’s Scuba Diving selected as the best dive site in the world.
