Scuba diving in Isabela Island (Albemarle)

Isabela Island is the largest island in the Galápagos, and is actually a conglomeration of six large volcanoes. The most interesting diving is done around the north coast and around Puerto Villamil in the south of Isabela. The west part of Isabela is directly in the path of the Cromwell current, so there is a lot of upwelling cold water, but due the cold water, several fish are more abundant here than elsewhere in the Galápagos islands, such as the Galápagos rock bass, gold-rimmed surgeonfish, harlequin wrasses, and sailfin grouper.Both beginners and experienced divers can find suitable dive sites. Most popular dive sites Some of the most interesting dive sites are Cape Marshall, Punta Vicente Roca sites, Roca Redonda, Isla Tortuga, Tagus Cove, Punta Albemarle. Roca Redonda is an underwater active volcano that rises 3000m/9483ft from the sea floor and emerges from the water as an island. Here divers can find Galápagos sharks, hammerhead sharks, and barracudas.
