Description: Wolf and Darwin islands are the most remote in the Galapagos archipelago. They sit over 160 kilometers/100 miles from the main island of Isabella on the Darwin-Wolf volcanic ridge. Wolf Island is named after the famous geologist Theodor Wolfe and is the more southerly of the two. The waters around Wolf Island have been recognized as some of the best dive sites in the world for many years. The marine life at Wolf and Darwin Islands is quite simply, spectacular. The cold currents that wash in bring a variety of different sharks like the shoals of Hammerheads and Galapagos Sharks and other interesting creatures. In the water you may also see various types of rays, and in particular, manta rays. Sea turtles can also be spotted here. These highlights aside, you can also expect to see a wide abundance of colorful fish. The landslide is a boulder strewn reef which resembles a landslide. This reef falls into the blue and you can sit on the edge here, hold on and witness one of the most amazing aquatic shows on earth. You will be surrounded by more sharks, turtles and shoals of rays than you ever imagined. The landslide is also a great place to get very close to the hammerheads. If you wait on the reef they often swim up so close you could almost touch them. Watch the Video to the end to see the massive shoal of hammerheads!
