Gordon Rocks dive site map Galapagos Islands

Location Details

Located in the north east side of Santa Cruz (northeast from Plazas), Gordon Rocks is probably one of the most popular dive sites in the Galapagos Islands. Depth ranges from 6 – 40+ meters (20 – 130+ feet) and visibility is usually about 6 – 18 meters (20 – 60 feet). Current and Surge are often strong, mainly in the shallows. The Gordon Rocks dive offers a great opportunity to experience advanced diving conditions and watch hammerhead sharks, rays, sea turtles and sea lions. The outside of the dive site also offers deep wall diving with pelagics and invertebrates along the wall.
