This week we had some incredible dives. Our first days of diving started in Chatham bay where huge school of fish came and went along with some sharks and lobster, moray eels and much more, this was just to get our people in the mood for more and different diving condition as we usually have some current in our next dives and they are also deeper dives . The next two dives were conducted in Manuelita one of the best if not the best site for the week,.On this dive, we had some amazing dives during the week with tons of Hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks and the Tiger sharks as they were almost there all the dives.
Next days we try to find the best sites for our people and there were some spots like Punta Maria with the Galapagos sharks. They have a cleaning station there and they just kept going around getting cleaned by the barber fish.
Dirty rock w was the best spot for the Hammerhead sharks, we were 20 minutes on the cleaning station with hammerheads everywhere and we ended up the dive drifting in blue water with at least 200 of then.
There were places with countless fish like the arch in submerged rock and the one in Dos Amigos Grande where we also dove with at least 50 Galapagos sharks.
Also the night dives full of adrenaline with all the white tip sharks hunting around you and to make it even better a big Galapagos showed up in one of the night dives. We got all excited by the Galapagos that wanted to prey on the white tip sharks.
This week we had the magic of Cocos Island and our guest were so happy to see all this creatures, that for sure they will be back soon.
Stay tuned for more
