Experience shark diving at its finest from a liveaboard around Malpelo Island, a forbidding Pacific outpost teeming with silkys, hammerheads and more.
Lying over 300 miles off the coast of Colombia, a peak of a large submarine volcanic ridge rises from depths of 4,000 metres to reveal itself as the tiny, solitary rock of Malpelo.
The island is home to a large variety and quantity of marine life including hammerhead sharks (Jan-May), huge concentrations of eagle rays and ‘waves' of silky sharks (May-Aug). Of particular interest to experienced divers there's the chance to encounter the extremely rare small sand toothed sand tiger shark in deep water from Jan-Apr.
Diving in these waters can be challenging and these trips are only recommended for adventurous and experienced divers.
The itinerary below is based on a nine night trip on board the MV Yemaya, the only vessel currently permitted to operate in these waters. Nine, ten and fourteen night trips are available.
