Scuba diving in Wolf Island

Wolf Island is found in the far northwest of the Galápagos and can only be reached by liveaboard vessel. It is part of an elongate volcanic ridge, a small uninhabited island that rises steeply to 253m/830ft above sea level. The most impressive fact about this favorite destination for divers is the abundance of fish--large schools of small, medium, and large animals. Here divers may see hammerhead sharks, Galápagos sharks, the elusive whale shark (from June to November), manta rays, eagle rays, jacks, scorpionfish, dolphins, green turtles, and hawksbill turtles. Wolf Island also has the most representative coral reef of the archipelago, with more than 8 species of corals. Some of the dive sites are Shark Bay, the Pinnacle, Landslide (said to be the best place to find hammerheads, and one of the highlights of this site is a cave that is covered in beautiful soft corals), La Banana, Elephant, and the Anchorage (a good night dive place, with an average depth of 30m/98ft). Shark Bay is a site only for experienced divers, with some very impressive and large animals such as Galápagos silky sharks, whale sharks, hammerheads, and dolphins. Visibility is often limited. The Pinnacle is named for a rock spire seen at the end of the dive with a point just 6m/20ft beneath the surface of the water, and a base at 36m/120ft. Done as a drift dive, the site has marble rays, and at the end are some underwater caverns inhabited by whitetip reef sharks. It is a good place for photographing large marine animals. These sites are mostly for advanced diver levels.
