The Mount Everest of Sharks, Malpelo is the Island of Sharks!

Beside Isla Coco, there is no other place in the world where you can encounter such huge Schools of Hammerhead- and schooling Silkie Sharks!

Malpelo Island is home to a large variety and quantity of marine creatures. Of special interest is the hammerhead shark with its awe-inspiring schools, reaching up to 300 hundred individuals. The enormous congregations of Silky Sharks who often mix with Hammerheads to form colossal Shark Schools and the huge number of cluster and free swimming Moray Eels are the two most outstanding phenomena in Malpelo.

Other common sights are the White Tip Shark, Galapagos Shark, giant schools of Angel Fish, Creole fish, Jacks, Tuna, and occasionally a Sail Fish, Whale Shark and even Humpback Whales and Blue Whale

Malpelo Island is a sinister and forbidding rock formation that plunges into the abysmal depths of the Pacific Ocean. This is a wild and spectacular marine environment that is renowned for its abundance and quantity of schooling of sharks and big marine animals.
