Comments Another great Aggressor trip although a bit expensive it was worth it just to experience the diving this location has to offer. If you want to see big animals you can't go wrong here. We saw whale sharks - numerous times, schooling hammerheads, dolphins, and many species of sharks. Lots of schooling fish.

Here is short video: [youtube.com link]

What was really cool is that you end up diving two different marine environments. The northern islands (Wolf and Darwin) had all the big blue water animal diving and the southern islands colder temperate diving with lots of interesting critters like Marine Iguanas, Mola Mola, Giant seahorse, sea lions and lots of other interesting creatures.

In addition to the diving we did a two day land tour which was plenty of time.

Boat, crew and divemasters were all of the quality you would expect on an Aggressor trip.

UW Photo Comments Wolf and Darwin had some very strong currents at times. Grabbing the reef with gloves was required at times. Reef hooks not allowed. Just something to consider if you are diving a big DSLR rig.
