The sea that surrounds the islands has many structures that are the habitat of an animal endless number. The diving is a good opportunity to explore those habitats
Rocky Bottoms: The coast Line of Galapagos Marine Reserve is covered mainly by rocky basalt of volcanic origins. Sandy Bottoms: A great variety of invertebrates inhabit this environment. The Floors of caves composed of fine organic sediment or thick volcanic sand are particularly rich. We also find mixed Floors that are characterized by a combination of rocky and sandy material. Vertical Walls: Vertical submarine walls can be found to depts. in excess of 70 m. These areas are refuges for great numbers of species.
Coral Reefs: Small Formations can be found through the archipelago far vast distances However in the northern islands, they are limited by the surges of cold water. They supply a heterogeneous habitat for a great number of species.
Strong Current: The convergence of numerous current systems on the islands result in an incredible complex oceanic system. The presence of upwelling and strong currents makes the Galapagos Islands an extraordinary yet exhilarating place to dive.
