“Vertical deep-water coral reefs are areas where essentially corals live on the side of an underwater cliff.”

Imagine walking in a forest, but then the entire scene is shifted 90 degrees – the forest is flipped up on its side. Everything in that ecosystem – living on the trees and vegetation – is still there, but now on a vertical plane instead of a flat, horizontal one. Join us as we explore pristine spaces hanging off steep, vertical cliffs in the deep sea of the Galápagos!
