Galapagos Scuba Diving With Hammerheads

The Galapagos Islands provide some of the planet’s most remarkable dive sites. It’s one of few places where massive pelagic species can be encountered very close to the shore. 

Various reef sharks and turtles illuminate most dives, although the hammerheads create the ultimate excitement. Not just one, but dozens, perhaps hundreds of them swarming in the same place. 

Diving down to see these hammerheads is a stunning moment, as you uncover the secrets that emerge from the islands’ deep abyss. The best dive sites for this are around Daphne Major and Daphne Minor.
