Cousin Rock, Galapagos

Famous site for advanced divers

Cousin Rock, Galapagos
  • Fauna abundance

  • Striking vistas

  • Difficulty

  • Snorkeling Quality


This is a famous site thanks to the wide variety of marine life you can encounter in just one dive, but it is for moderate to advanced divers only. Depths range from 10 to 90ft, with visibility between 30 and 60ft depending on the season. Currents here are moderate, and surges will be experienced in the shallows.

In the water you'll encounter sloping rock plate formations and a fantastic wall that drops far down out of sight. These rocky formations are home to seahorses, Galapagos black coral, octopus, a wide range of tropical fish and Galapagos sharks and hammerheads.

When you add to this the friendly sea lions who almost always come to play with divers and the elegant green turtles that cruise past, this dive site really does have it all.
