Punta Vicente Roca dive site map Galapagos Islands

Location Details

Located at the Northwestern side of Isabela Island, Punta Vicente Roca is a wall dive to a maximum depth of 27 meters (90 feet). Visibility can be challenging in the shallows with averages of 2 – 5 meters (5 – 15 feet) in the colder times of the year. Deeper than 12 meters (40 feet) visibility usually increases to 12 – 24 meters (40 – 80 feet) and temperature drops rapidly. Punta Vicente Rocafuerte is one of the best wall dives in the Galapagos and allows a completely different landscape. The wall hosts invertebrates, sea horses, frog fish and other species. The outside of the wall allows to watch deep mola mola (sun fish) comming from the deep to cleaning stations. Current is neglectible and surge can be moderate in the shallows.
