Sharks in the Galapagos

I did some scuba diving around Kicker Rock by San Cristobal Island and saw plenty of reef sharks

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

but no hammerhead sharks, which is what I really wanted to see.

So, I went diving on Santa Cruz Island a few days later at the Gordon Rocks dive site and even though the visibility was pretty crappy – as you can tell from the pictures – we saw a giant school of baracuda.

that blacked out the ocean all around us

Hammerheads for days

Cheverisimo!
