Galapagos Diving Trips| Bartholomew The Platform Experience

Bartolome offers terraced steps that descend to 30 meters before dropping down to a Sandy bottom at 40 meters. The steps are covered with soft black coral, and are an excellent place to find the Pacific Seahorse.

The overhangs from some of the steps are favourite places of the white tipped reef sharks, green sea turtles and large moray eels, as well as octopi. Schools of barracuda and other reef fish can also be seen at these sites. Manta rays and hammerheads can often be seen off the steps in the blue.
