Trip report 7
From January 6th to 14th.
The first stop on this trip was in San Benedicto Island, where we dove in “El Cañón” and “Dos Hermanas”. The dives were great on both sites; with mantas, silver tip sharks and two big schools of hammerheads.
After being in San Benedicto, we headed to Roca Partida for two days. The dives there were spectacular! We saw tunas probably over two hundred pounds of weight, around 30 Galapagos sharks swimming together with some silver tip sharks, all on the north side of the rock. On the south part, we found the school of hammerheads in deep water.
In Roca Partida the highlight was a bait ball that we spotted at the end of the day. We jumped in the panga with mask, fins, snorkel, wetsuit and camera ready! When we arrived to the site we saw dozens of silky sharks and tunas hunting. This was an incredible experience for us.
After being in Roca we did our fourth day of diving at “Cabo Pierce” in Socorro Island. Here we saw six or seven dolphins on the first two dives. They were hunting and chasing the jack’s. We also had a nice encounter with three mantas and a few hammerheads and silver tip sharks.
The last day of the trip was in San Benedicto, this time we dove in “El Boiler”. On the first dive of the day we saw dolphins, but they didn’t stay longer. In all the dives we saw mantas; up to six of them on the third dive, and hammerheads here and there.
This was another great trip of scuba diving in Revillagigedo Islands.
