Galapagos diving with the experts
Galapagos is one of the top dive sites in the world. Famed for the wealth of sharks that patrol her waters, it offers unique and spectacular underwater wildlife. Hammerheads are the first and foremost attraction with schools in vast numbers gathering around the submerged pinnacles of Wolf and Darwin. White tips and Galapagos sharks are common too.
For those who like their fish even bigger, Whalesharks are often seen in the blue, along with Eagle, Manta and Mobula Rays. Sea Lions are incredibly playful, fast and sleek. The islands also offer the Marine Iguana, the only sea going lizard in the world, along with Penguins and host of smaller fish from Rainbow Runners and Sail Fins to Salema and Snapper (if you can tear your eyes off the larger fish that is!)
Galapagos Diving was chosen by Rodale's Scuba Diving (www.scubadiving.com) as the world's top all around diving experience for the year 2000. Galapagos diving hit the number 1 spot "Best Fish Life", "Best Big Animal Dive", "Best Advanced Diving" and scored among the top as the "Healthiest Marine Environment", and "Best Value". The waters around Galapagos are truly unique with 17% of the fish and 35% of the marine invertebrates in the Galapagos are found only in this isolated archipelago.
