Coral reef and marine fauna

The confluence of the cold Humboldt current coming from the South and the warm El NiƱo current coming from the North, give the Ecuadorian coast an incredible diversity of marine wildlife and thus, amazing diving opportunities!

This diving tour includes 2 immersions around the islet of "Los Ahorcados", a rock formation with three tips. This special shape makes it an ideal place for several species of birds and marine fauna to find food. Currently it is a habitat for migratory birds, and the sea that surrounds it, is deep turquoise with large reef of coral that hosts colorful fish and various marine species. This site is very special as it is one of the last places where the endangered Angel sharks are still visible.
