Gordon Rocks is a highlight of any scuba diving experience in The Galapagos Islands. It is  the top of a submerged cone at the northeastern end of Santa Cruz Island.  It is sometimes referred to as ‘the washing machine’ for good reason.   The exposed northern and southern rocks are what remains of a caldera.  Below the water are submerged pinnacles and a channel between that can make for very strong currents, surge, down currents and there is depth, so this site is an advanced dive site.

 Location: Gordon Rocks is one of the best dive sites in the central islands. It is an eroded crater at the top of a tuff cone. Near the east coast of Santa Cruz Island, 2 dive sites located 45 minutes from Itabaca Channel (North side of Santa Cruz Island).

Site Conditions: This rock formation is a world renowned site, for intermediate and advanced divers due to the strong currents and surge.

Activity: Hammerhead shark, Cleaning station, Galapagos sharks, white tip reef shark, mobulas rays, turtles, reef fishes, sting rays, eagle rays, Galapagos eel, barracudas, variety of invertebrates.

Dive difficulty: Though Gordon Rocks can be a calm and easy dive at times, it is famous for it´s currents that carry the hammerhead sharks. Therefore, it is best suited to advanced divers. Please ask for current conditions if you are in-experienced.

Duration: Full day tour.
