Help with diving itinerary for Advanced Diver

I'm arriving at Baltra Sept 20th and have 4 full days to dive: 21st-24th. I am leaving on the 25th. I want to dive with hammerheads, sharks, sea lions, etc, species that I don't normally see in the Caribbean where I do most of my diving. Which island do I stay at? What operator do you recommend? What dive sites should I not miss? I am an advanced diver.

All recommendations and ideas welcome!

Take a look at PADI website, looking for Resorts or something like that.

Two of the best dive sites in Galapagos are

- Kicker Rock/Leon Dormido and Gordon's Rocks ( recommended for very experienced divers only)

Other good dive sites:

- North Seymour

- Bartholomew Point

- Daphne Minor

- Floreana

I was excited for the opportunity to dive Gordon Rocks in April. I didn't find the dive profile especial difficult despite the currents but there wasn't much to see - no hammerheads our day. Not sorry I dove there but looking forward to heading back to the Caribbean in a few months. :-)
