Galapagos Islands Scuba Diving | Daphne Minor Experience

Daphne is located off the northern coast of Santa Cruz and is very diverse. It is a wall dive with little current. The main attractions to this site are the frequent visits by Manta Rays. There is always plankton in the water, so the visibility is not fantastic, but they come so close it is not a problem. Juvenile Galapagos sharks, white tipped reef sharks and eagle rays are also common.

 Location: Near the north coast of Santa Cruz Island, a big flat-topped exposed rock.  It is an eroded tuff cone. Located 30 minutes from Itabaca Channel (North side of Santa Cruz Island).

Site Conditions: Moderate currents at this site, a drift dive along the impressive drop-off at the top of a sloping wall, rocky and sandy bottom.

Activity: Here we find a small cave (this is NOT a cave dive) where white tip reef sharks rest, additionally there is a pinnacle where we find a diversity of rays, Galápagos shark, turtles, reef fishes, barracudas, black coral walls and variety of invertebrates.

Dive difficulty: Easy to intermediate due to the wall. The dive isn’t deep, but you have to watch your depth.

Duration: Full day tour.
