Considered to be two of the best diving sites in the world, Wolf and Darwin islands are reached by liveaboard and provide an unparalleled quality and quantity of marine life to experience.

The islands are cleaning and feeding stations, home to a diverse and abundant marine life and world-class dive sites. Experienced divers will be rewarded with eagle and marble ray encounters, hundreds of sharks and playful dolphin. Darwin’s Arch is home to large schools of fish, turtle, hammerhead and Galapagos sharks. Whale sharks are attracted to the area when the Humboldt Current is at its strongest - June to November - when the water temperature ranges from 16-24C.

These remote islands offer exciting and challenging encounters with an amazing biodiversity of marine life. They are reached only by liveaboard and, in order to get the best out of your trip of a lifetime, you should be at least advanced qualified.
