This week we had a late departure, but we still made it on time to get in the water at the usual time for the first dive.
Our week started with tons of fish, sharks and rays, the tiger sharks were really active in our first day of diving and to end that first day we had a huge Manta coming right on top of us, she was just cruising.
Second day we had a nice surprise as both groups saw a whale shark in two different places at the same time, on our third day we had again the whale shark we got all excited about it and went off the rock after the whale shark, two diver decided to stay on the rock and were lucky enough to see two whale sharks together, our week went on having these and other sights, like the two mobulas in Dos Amigos, tigers in Manuelita, Galapagos and Black tips in Dirty Rock, Submerged rock had tons of fish in the arch.
Then the hammerhead sharks, we had one of the best weeks as far as the hammers go, they were in Manuelita, Dirty Rock and Alcyone, they were coming to get clean and sometimes we went out in the blue water and found them in huge schools, on our last day we had two dives in Alcyone, that time the hammers were really close to the rocks and the divers, also they were in the open sea and just to make it an incredible day on our very last dive of the week and while seeing hammers in their cleaning station a 20 foot whale shark went by so slow that some of us escorted this giant to the other group of dives who were close by, towards the end of the dive we were all together celebrating while doing our safety stop.
The weather was nice we had lots of sun and the crossings were nice both ways.
