Have you ever swam with sharks?
The odds are that you won’t even see one on your Galapagos trip. Well, unless you go looking for them…
Going on a Shark Hunt
During our last Galapagos trip, I wanted to see some sharks. So we had a guide take us to a place that he knew of – that was known to have sharks.
We traveled by kayak to this special snorkel spot.
It only took a few minutes to locate a group of white tipped reef sharks. They hunt at night so they are often found resting here during the day.
While we were watching them under a rock (in about 4 meters of water) one of them left the cave and swam in a large circle around their area. During his little patrolling trip I was able to get some good shots. These photos are stills taken out of a video.
The Galapagos reef sharks are not considered dangerous. They didn’t even seem to notice us snorkeling above.
