Wolf and Darwin Islands are considered by experts as the "Shark-Mecca" of the World
Sharks are a protected species in the Galapagos Marine Reserve and are present in large numbers at close range to divers. Over many years of intensive diving we have never had an adverse encounter with them.
The National Park authorities do not permit spear-fishing. We do not "chum" the water, feed sharks or touch land or marine animals.
The arch of Darwin Island is considered nowadays to be THE best place to encounter whalesharks in the world!
