In this episode, we explore Malpelo Island in Colombia. Malpelo is a small island in the eastern Pacific Ocean, located about 500 km west of the Colombian mainland. It consists of sheer and barren rock with three high peaks, the highest being Cerro de la Mona with a height of 300 m. Divers can find one of the largest shark populations in the world. Imagine swimming with 200 to 300 hammerhead sharks and hundreds of silky sharks. Whale sharks, eagle rays, tuna, sailfish, and whales are common visitors of this underwater ridge. If you love sharks you will find shark diving at its best. Underwater Footage and Photographs courtesy of Malpelo Foundation. If you speak Spanish, we suggest we listen to our interviews with a naturalist, environmentalist, and professional diver Sandra Bessudo.
