Exploratory scuba diving looking for more mantas at San Benedicto Island

Location: The Boiler and North Point, San Benedicto Island, Socorro/Revillagigedo, Mexico
Comments: Divemaster Sten reports that today was much calmer manta wise than yesterday.  A couple of giant manta rays passed by the scuba divers but did not come in really close.  So instead, Sten and divemaster Tricia spent time observing whitetip reef sharks at the cleaning stations and taking a look at the smaller critters that they did not have time with yesterday.  In Sten’s words: a day like today with a little bit of extra current is important to stay close the rock to not get swept away.  We decided to try a new site on the north point of San Benedicto Island and it was GREAT!!  We spotted 5 mantas on the surface before anchoring.  In the dive we also saw them.  3 green turtles who stayed with us.  Above us on this ridge we had huge yellowfin tunas and also dolphins.  So we decided to do our last scuba dive of the trip here as well. On the safety stop one of our Divemasters got his thumb bitten as a goodbye by a Cortez Chub.
