A good way to get to Darwin and Wolf.

Diving in Darwin and Wolf islands with the schools of hammerheads again, after too many years. Mola molas, sea lions and other creatures are great, too.

Nice diving experience in Galapagos

Underwater fauna: galapagos, silky, hammerhead sharks in big schools (30/40 animals), turtles, mola-mola, sea lions, dolphins. Challenging diving experience: cold water (16-20°C) and strong currents (also vertical)

Challenging but amazing dives, land and underwater fauna, nice atmosphere in my diving group
