Warmup dives with giant mantas at the Boiler

Had a really nice ocean crossing from Cabo San Lucas to San Benedicto Island with seas that were almost completely flat.  Ocean crossings during the season that we operate here are generally very nice. As the conditions were so good and the Solmar V was anchored at the Canyon (our normal check out dive spot), we went directly to the Boiler. It turned out to be a good choice. We did two dives there up to 5 different friendly mantas well spread out so we all where not all gathered at one spot. They spend the time with uus almost two full dives. What a good start.  The last third dive we went to the Canyon. Some of us where lucky to spot over a 50 hammerhead sharks at he cleaning station others missed them all, thats diving . Still what a good opening on our first day of  the trip.   Divemaster Sten
