This Week we had a spectacular group of photographers from all over the
planet they came as part of the BLUE WATERS TRAVEL group, they were all
after the pictures and the underwater world paid off, most of them came out
with amazing pictures so we had Hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks, Galapagos
sharks, marble rays, eagle rays. Morays and all the usual cast of fish Coco
Island has to offer. Some of the dives were challenging and the
photographers were really good diver as they had to carry such expensive and
heavy cameras in currents that would normaly wear out some of the most
experience divers but in their case they kept up to the water conditions.
This week we had full moon so the conditions were a bit different we had
more thermos and currents and vis was constantly changing so taking pictures
was a not an easy task.
We had dives with 100% adrenaline like the time we made over Dos Amigos
Pequeño current was really going and the Galapagos sharks kept going deeper
and deeper some hammers came and went and towards the end of the dive were a
bit tired to just hold on to the rocks.
We had amazing dives in Manuelita Dirty Rock and Alcyone, few times when we
drifted in the blue water we saw the big school of hammers down deep too bad
we were doing our safety stops by then.
The top water conditions were also a bi unstable as we had rain and sun,
constants changes made our week a bit chilly but again nothing would stop
the photographers, the were leaded by Kadu an amazing photographer from
Brazil, he was always there for his people and always willing to help them
in any way possible.
Week went well for all of us and the crossing back was nice and flat.
