Another great week of diving specially the very last day on the island, during the week we had some hammerhead sharks, also the tiger shark, some Galapagos shark, marble rays, Mobulas ray and the ton of fish we saw in The arch of Dos Amigos and the arch of Submerged rock, Dirty Rock had some hammerheads and Galapagos shark too but what happened to us in the last day of diving was incredible. We seen hammers the previous day so we decide to make it back to this underwater plateau. On the first dive just before we got in the water a couple of dolphins came close to the raft, so people rushed in the water and as soon as they hit the ocean the dolphins vanished in the blue. I signaled to the divers a school of horse eyed jack moving erratically so I moved faster until we got close enough to see this amazing huge school of jacks.


The second dive was even better because again we went out in the blue and this time we got to see tons of Hammerhead sharks and I mean loads of them! We had to make our third dive in Alcyone because guest really wanted to go and see the hammers again. Since it was our last day we did it finding the hammers. As we were doing our safety stop, the chase boat came on top of our bubbles letting us know he had seeing us, so some of the divers began getting out of the water when all of the sudden a 20 foot whale shark showed up! Our hearts stopped and those who were on the boat already got back in the water so happy to see this giant, “the dream of a diver seeing a whale shark”………… this whale shark went around the dinghy for more than an hour letting us take pictures and video it was actually sad to leave this new friend we made in the ocean.


What an incredible way to end the week of diving.
