Dive with Hammerhead Sharks at Malpelo Island

Malpelo Island, Colombia

Depth: 30m (99ft)
Visibility: 10-35m (33-115ft)

Malpelo Island is a volcanic formation that sits 500km west of Colombia and is an absolute Hammerhead mecca! Although May thru September is considered the best time to dive, Hammerhead sharks are closer to the surface in the cold season, January to March.

Of the 25 dive sites, the southern pinnacles, Nevera, and Altar de Virginia are top locations for shark sitings. Malpelo Island can be accessed by liveaboards only from both Colombia and Panama.
