This week we had some amazing people as well as amazing diving.
Both crossings were really flat and fast, from last week to this one the change was incredible as this time we had an amazing quantity of sharks compare to the previous trip, we had one special place that performed to the best of Coco Island. In that particular site we had tons of hammers, Galapagos sharks and the cast of fish who are always there for us, there was this school of horse eyed jacks hanging just in 60 feet of water and always willing to let us get close for the pictures. DIRTY ROCK, we loved it so much that we did it several time and we always wanted more.
There were beautiful surprises like the arch in Submerged rock with tons of blue and yellow stripped snappers, the huge arch in Dos Amigos Grande also full of fish and a friendly eagle ray and as we started to come out of the arch a medium size tiger shark went by, then this one dive in Alcyone with a couple of dolphins swimming just over head.
The hammers were a bit deeper because that is where the cool water was, and believe me it was worth it to make it there because the action was endless. On our very last dive of the week we had some more of the hammers in Dirty Rock and to make it even better a group of no less than 8 huge Galapagos was roaming around the hammerheads cleaning station, the week was awesome, the people were great and weather could not be better.
Thanks to all of our guests; John and Teresa, Jeremy, Tina D., Cyril, Jonas, James and Jane, Pierre, Peter and Elizabeth, Anne Gerard, David, Tucker, Alfred, Christopher, Tina, Stephane, Vasken, And Jean Marie for a great week of diving.
