The diving this week was amazing we barely move from dive sites as some of our guests did not want to deal with the current so one of the groups did Manuelita my old favorite many times and every time we made it there the dives were incredible, many years ago I had this one guest who described Manuelita as a movie theater he literally said every time you go there it will be the same movie theater but they will be playing a different movie every time and it work just like that every time we made it down there was some different if not the tiger sharks there would be the Galapagos sharks, or the eagle rays, or the marble rays, the white tip shark, or the yellow fin tunas, the hammerhead sharks were among the most common fish in the reef and if you would do the right thing by just sitting in a place and stay still the hammers would come really close to you.
Dont get me wrong there were places with just about the same action as in Dirty Rock and Alcyone is just that they were a bit more challenge as they had some current at the beginning of the week. Then we had Dos Amigos small and big, both places were beautiful with ton of fish and action in the small Dos Amigos we had a school of nearly 16 Galapagos sharks most of them were huge but shy, there was no way to get any close to this giant of the sea.
We had really good weather this week lots of sun and a fair amount of rain, the crossings back and forth were just fine, people enjoy their dives especially the night dives as they wanted their picture taken with the sharks going in a feeding frenzy then as we got back to the boat Osayuki would greet us with sip of hot cocoa with coffee liquor
