Drifting in the blue with schooling hammerhead sharks

Location:  Roca Partida, Revillagigedos, Mexico
Over two days we got in 8 dives here, and although not quite as active as the previous trip, we still enjoyed plenty of the big fish we came to see, including some friendly and curious dolphin encounters, silver-tip, scalloped hammerhead and Galapagos sharks. A drift dive in the ‘blue’ provided us with an impressive school of hammerheads. Ledges along the wall make a great spot to get very close to the smaller white-tip sharks resting in the nooks. Just as impressive are the number of moray eels that hide in the vertical crevices that run along this rock, some of which are home to dozens of the gaped-mouth morays intertwined amongst each other. Add to that giant schools of jacks and some very large yellow-fin tuna and its hard not to be very impressed by the diving here.
