Snorkeling With White Tipped Reef Sharks

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…

As a family, we’ve snorkeled many times in the Galapagos and swam with lots of amazing animals including sea turtles and sea lions. And I had never seen a shark.

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.
