Malpelo – UNESCO World Heritage SiteMalpelo Fauna and Flora Sanctuary Malpelo Island
Malpelo is a remote volcanic island located over 300 miles oﬀ the coast of Columbia. It is the largest no ﬁshing zone in the Eastern Tropical Paciﬁc and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The deep water and various ocean currents make this the perfect place for an extraordinary shark population. It is widely acclaimed as one of the top diving sites in the world due to the large aggregates of sharks and pelagic species. Due to the strong ocean currents, this is a destination for experienced divers and all divers must have an Advanced Open Water certiﬁcation, Nitrox certiﬁcation and at least 50 logged dives. Massive schools of hammerhead and silky sharks are found here along with Galapagos, white tip, whale sharks, manta and eagle rays, free-swimming moray eels, as well as the reclusive small tooth sand tiger. If you are looking to dive with hundreds of hammerheads and silky sharks you want to join Blue Green Expeditions on this adventure!
