This was our first voyage to the north part of Costa Rica, the weather condition for the most part was incredible, flat seas and a bright sun we were all excited to start this new adventure call “Guanacaste” the diving here is amazing, tons of fish, we found lots of sea horses and a good place for frog fish, there were this place where you can find black coral in just 40 feet of water, we also have this one place where the bull sharks come right up to you they come in an endless parade and they just kept coming around and around, all of this with no need to swim for long. Many times we had the dolphins come up to the Okeanos, also we had the mobula rays leaping out of the water, this one day while we were coming back to the Okeanos we heard whale shark whale shark, we asked and turns out some guests from the other group were in the water snorkeling with a 25 feet whale shark that came to visit the okeanos, things like this made this trip an amazing adventure for all of us.
This other day we went down in “big scare” the dive site with the bull sharks as we reached the bottom these two nurse sharks were just there like saying hi, as we move around there were five bull sharks going around then a huge school of grunts then as we ascended to the safety stop a manta went by just cruising by, the hardest part of this cruise was to choose the right lens for your camera sometimes you are ready for wide angle and some small showed up, then you come ready for the small but a manta or even a whale shark shows up. Visibility was not on our side I blame the full moon for it as it brings different currents and sometimes this currents come in dark colors.
We had a beautiful group of people and it was a blast to see people who is been on this yacht before, they came to see Guanacaste and they loved it.
Our crossing back to port was a bit rough but our guest took it well as their memories were bigger than the waves.
Stay tune for more
