Roca Blanca, Galapagos

A secret tipp for world-class diving


Opened up only in 2012, this area is rarely visited by divers and is recognized for encounters with six different species of shark, manta & eagle rays, sea lions, moray eels, lobsters, and a prolific population of “tropicals”. For divers, Roca Blanca is therefore a secret tipp, a mecca for sea life, much like the Arch at Darwin Island. Located on the South East coast of Isabela Island, this  area promises to reveal some of the very best diving the central islands has to offer. Waters in the central islands are cooler and more nutrient rich than the areas of Wolf and Darwin. This increases the diversity and intensity of marine life. Most unusual, the sites at Roca Blanca also offer the occasional opportunity to encounter enormous bait balls and marauding billfish in action… True Galapagos diving!
