Galápagos #4: Wolf & Darwin
Wolf and Darwin are well known names to most divers. About 100 miles north of Isabela Island these two big uninhabited rocks are completely by itself. The Darwins Arch has become a symbol for spectacular diving. Especially the hammerhead sharks are notorious for this spot. To be ankered in front of the Islands and going out to the Arch in the morning, jumping in and just beeing there is a wonderful feeling. You never know what showes up. Patrolling along the reef you will come across turtles, sea lions, galapagos sharks, hammerhead sharks, rays and all kinds of reef fish in great numbers. When you get low on air you turn towards the blue, which is the magical part of the dive because diving aways from the rocks might holds big surprises like dolphins, whalesharks or other great pelagics … you name it.
