Diving the Northern Islands of Galapagos
The northern islands of the archipelago have slightly warmer (22-25 Celsius) and more clear water with 10-30 meters visibility. Currents can be powerful, so always follow the instructions of your guide. The main Galapagos marine life attractions here are the pelagic species. Huge schools of jacks, hammerheads, Galapagos sharks, silky sharks, and, from July to October, whale sharks congregate here. Pacific green sea turtles, moray eels, marble rays, and eagle rays are also commonly sighted. Dolphins are frequent, along with sea lion colonies as well. Wolf and Darwin islands are among the most famous dive sites in the world but are only reachable via liveaboard.
