This week we had a bumpy ride to the island, weather condition weren’t the best but with a sea sick pill there was no problem. Once on the island, conditions were a bit unstable so we had a fair amount of rain and sun, the underwater conditions were also in constant change. Our first day we had some amazing diving with beautiful visibility but from the second to the third dive of the day the visibility went down a lot. Through the week it all changed for the better, we had a very sorted menu and in big quantities, so we had whales sharks, tiger sharks, Galapagos sharks, silky sharks, and swarms of hammerhead sharks, we found the hammers out in the blue while doing our safety stops. Dirty Rock and Alcyone both places had the most hammerheads for the week! We dived Dos Amigos small and while letting the hammerheads come close a baby whale shark showed up this thing was so small and beautiful it make wanna take it home with your pour little thing felt so protected around us that stay most of the dive with us, it would vanish in the blue water just to show up later and swim with us for a while.
This week we had an entire group of Spaniards leaded by famous photographer Felipe Barrio and wife Sharo, they come here almost every years cause they know where to go for big stuff.
Crossing back to mainland was easy flat and for the most part sunny
Stay tune for more
