Dive with playful Sea Lions, schooling hammerheads and travel to the famous Darwin and Wolf Islands on Aggressor’s Galapagos Islands liveaboard scuba diving trip.
In 2016, Ecuador created a marine sanctuary in the area of Darwin and Wolf that includes 15,000 square miles as off limits to all fishing to conserve the sharks that congregate there and the ecosystem on which they rely. 32% of the waters around the Galapagos islands are now protected from fishing, which allows the unique sea life here to flourish!
Galapagos is one of the most exciting destinations in the world. The scenic view of the Darwin Arch is as picturesque as you can imagine.
