Gordon Rocks is a highlight of any diving experience in the Galapagos. It is is the top of a submerged cone at the northeastern end of Santa Cruz Island. It is sometimes referred to as 'the washing machine' for good reason. The exposed northern and southern rocks are what remains of a caldera. Below the water are submerged pinnacles and a channel between that can make for very strong currents, surge, down currents and there is depth, so this site is an advanced dive site.
The degree of difficulty is intermediate to advanced. Depth range: 20-130 ft. avg 60-80 ft. Current / Surge is strong at times.

North Seymour has two dive sites: The ocean side and the channel side. On the ocean side, You dive on a rocky slope and end up in the shallower area close to the island. Jacks, manta rays, eagle rays, marble rays, stingrays and even hammerhead sharks and marlins have been seen here. There are also lots of reef fishes like Yellowtail grunts and bluestriped snappers (rayado) and salemas. Since there are a lot of fish here, you can often observe birds like boobies diving into the water and sea lions.
The channel side can be an excellent dive site. The area is not very deep (about 20 meters / 65 feet) but sometimes there is quite a lot of current. You start from the eastern corner and following the major currents, you dive relatively fast over the rock plateau. Galapagos sharks cruise around and there are fish everywhere. There is a large sandy area at 15 meters / 49 feet with a large colony of endemic garden eels.
Mosquera: Sea Lions, Eagle Rays, Hammerheads, White-Tipped Reef Shark, Garden Eels, Snake Eels, Jack, Mackerel, Threebanded Butterflyfish, Sea Turtles, Yellowtail Surgeonfish, Yellow and Blue Striped Snappers, King Angelfish, Parrotfish, Yellowtail Grunt, Peruvian Grunt, Cardinalfish, Galapagos Grunt, Sea Stars and more.
There's a cleaning station at about 15 meters / 49 feet where snappers are in abundance and hammerheads may gather. The large colony of garden eels, have a large field of cushion stars beyond. The surface interval is in a shallow sandy bottom where you may snorkel with large colonies of sea lions.
From tiny nudibranchs to Mantas (especially between December and April). Add to that all the rays (spotted eagle rays, marble rays, golden eagle rays, stingrays), the "piles" of sleeping white tipped reef sharks, sea lions, sea turtles and hammerhead sharks. Several thick schools of grunts and snappers are always present.
Currents: prevalently from south. It goes from moderate to very strong. Water temp: Dec - April: 74 - 78 F / May - Nov: 68 – 72 F. Thermoclines: at 15 meters / 45 feet and sometimes also at 23 meters /75 feet.
Cousins: Is a small rock, the remains of an eroded crater sticking up out of the sea. A small number of birds and sea lions do find reprise there and sometimes even fur seals, but its appeal is under the sea. On the eastern side, the rock cascades down in a series of recessed ledges strewn with black coral which is bright green under the water. Taking cover in the coral is Cousins claim to fame in diving, seahorses. Spot them in the coral around / 50 ft. You can also spot long nosed hawkfish, sometimes frogfish, turtles and the ever present bounty of fish in the Galapagos. It's not unusual to spot pelagics from Cousins including eagle rays, golden rays, mobulas and the last time I was there, we had numbers of gianta mantas up close and personal. Nothing quite like a dive right where you descend on top of a manta.
