We are halfway Revillagigedo´s season and the underwater action its getting better and better every trip with lots of surprises under water.
Our first stop was “El Cañon” where we had a visibility of about 20 m/60 ft and fresh water (around 73°f), lots of different sharks at the cleaning station Galapagos sharks reaching close to the divers, bulky black tips coming from deep water, silver tips, hammerheads and white tip reef sharks circling around the rocks. A couple mantas around the same spot and they were quite friendly. We had a really pleasant surprise during the third dive because the humpback whale decided to swim through the dive site and let us join them for a few moments, being escorted by playful dolphins.
Roca Partida was our second destination and didn’t let down our expectations… schools of hammerheads swimming around the south area of the rock left us amazed and also mixing with some other species of sharks such as Galapagos sharks and silver tips, this was truly and amazing view. On the second day on Roca we still had quite some hammerheads circling the rock and big Galapagos too. A current took all the divers for a ride out in the blue and surprisingly showed us a huge ball of fish in the middle of the column of water, the sight from the inside of this school was amazing, just like been inside a tornado of fish.
Fourth day of diving was in cabo pearce, Socorro Island… big school of hammerheads swimming by the south part of the site and guess what, humpback whales decided to swim by the dive site again blowing our mind. Lots of fish but no the best visibility at this place but we always are happy to come back.
The last stop was “El Boiler” in San Benedicto Island where we had 4 amazing dives with many different mantas coming and going all over the place having their “usual” interaction with the divers. The last dive was what we called a manta dive, while four mantas at the same time spend more that one hour dancing with us and each other, it was truly a memorable day.
