Another great week of diving and this time we had a dive with the Owner’s week with Wayne Hasson. He was here making sure thing were up to speed and helping the guests with their photos and videos.

The diving was good through the end of the week. Most guests had seen the schooling hammers, Galapagos and the night dive were loaded with action. Wayne was carrying these huge bright lights that made the night dives even better. He was able to get these white tip sharks tearing apart a moray eel. The scene was wild and guests were crazy about it.

There were a few of the day dives that had some really good action like the one in Alcyone with the dolphins. As we dropped in the water they came right up to us. I was not prepare for them and did could not get a good picture then however they came back minutes later because they were after a huge school of horse eyed jacks. Also, the dive in Submerged Rock was amazing as the little arch was full of fish that made a small hole to let you swim thru.

The hammerhead sharks were in Dirty Rock, they were there every time we went. A few of those dives in this small rock were loaded with Hammers and Galapagos sharks. At times they came kept circling around and if you could stay down close to the ground they would come really close. There was one dive in Dirty Rock that we all came out of the water but two divers stayed longer in the water for their safety stop. Good fortune smile at them with a pod of dolphins.

The weather was nice for the week, both crossing were flat and easy.

Thanks to all of our guests; Dominique, Janet and Tim, Cathy and Manrique, Alex, Robson, Gabriel, Jean Pierre, Pavel, Michael, Jiri, Arina and Oleg, Ai, Andrew, Ellen, Adrian Ariel and Wayne Hasson for a great week of diving.
