Our trip out to Cocos Island started with a pod of dolphins riding our bow, a beautiful sunset and calm seas. We had three father/son groups on board this week, making it an excellent celebration of Fathers Day. The youngest onboard, Brendan, was 15 celebrating his 200th dive and third Aggressor cruise with his father and brother.
Our first day of diving at Manuelita found hammerheads around the cleaning stations, a massive eagle ray, a tiger shark patrolling and a manta soaring in the current.
We circled the island diving from Chatham Bay, Punta Maria, Dirty Rock, Viking Rock, Alcyone, Submerged Rock, Pajara Island to Dos Amigos. Each night dive was a shark hunting and feeding frenzy with dozens of sharks searching in our lights with some amazing up close pictures. At Dos Amigos, Galapagos, hammerheads and black tip sharks made an appearance along with some Mobula and marbled rays. Throughout the week, we frequently were accompanied by dolphins on our way to our dive sites.
Our last day of diving back around Manuelita finished with excellent pictures of two red frogfish, hammerhead encounters, marble and eagle rays, as well as another tiger shark.
I also wanted to mention and thank Carol Giles for writing the captains log this week, Carol and her husband were sweet an always willing to help and always happy to be here feeling the wonders of Cocos island.
Stay tune for more
