This week we had incredible weather above water. The conditions were close to perfect, lots of sun, in what I would call full tropical weather. So both crossing to and from the island were amazingly quiet, giving lots of time for guest to relax.

On the island the dive was really good; hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, black tip sharks, white tips and tiger sharks made for an exceptional diving adventure! “Jerzy” came out of one of the dives saying “I just saw a wall of hammerheads” and yes we saw so many, we were happy! The only thing about the week that could be better was visibility, but the good about low Vis is that the fish have to be close to you in order to see you, but visibility improved for the better as the week went on.

Let me just tell you about this one dive in Punta Maria so you have an idea on the dives we have here.

We made it down there we gathered around and headed for the cleaning station in about 85 feet (27meters). As we approached the spot, the Galapagos sharks are going around and around I am not kidding. We had 18 Galapagos in one little area and some of these fellows were big, along the Galapagos we had four black tip sharks, once in a while a hammerhead would show up, we spent 24 minutes then our computers started to say go up some of the air people were already doing their safety stop and that is why we recommend people to dive nitrox while diving Coco island, so around minute 25 a 14 foot tiger shark swam thru the cleaning station making every single shark in it move to the side! My jaw dropped as seeing Tiger in Punta Maria in not an everyday sight.

 

Stay tune for more
