The tiger shark issue brings up a question I've had; seems like the Socorros, Cocos Island, Malpelo and the Galapagos have considerable overlap in what you may see there (though some varies by season) - mantas, hammerheads and so forth.

It's my understanding from others' reports Tiger sharks are mainly associated with Cocos Island, and it's my understanding that's more in recent years (coinciding with a drop in sea turtle numbers there...).

Anyone care to comment as to what other big animals one would see mainly at one of these destinations, or perhaps at two or three but probably not at another?

I say big to keep it simple, and the Galapagos, depending on where you go, I'm told has the chance to see penguins and marine iguanas, so I'll lead with those as common knowledge.

Richard.

Wow, awesome video! It was like diver porn . . .must have been based on the exclamations coming from my mouth. Sweet whale shark, so beautiful to swim right over to you and then turn, just you could catch every spot and ripple and ridge . . .MmmmMmmmmMmm

Is this video a compilation or did you take it during one trip in December? They say that Hammerheads are there in May-June.
