Back at Socorro Island for the Start of another Season. Whooohooooo

Another wonderful day with lots of excitemnet we had current swell and sun
and fish some of the divers even managed to see a whale shark in the first
dive of the day. Not quite sure which way I had to look because the action
was happening everywhere. Morays down below along the walls gigantic lobster
poking their head out of their holes in the rock while lots of little sharks
staring at us from the shelfs or swimming against the current ahead of
us…….more of this tomorrow.
It was fantastic today to see my first ever whale shark after fifteen years
of diving. it was a great day (Andy and all his dive buddies)
Roca Partida is the usual exciting mix of unpredictable current. It has
spectacular underwater topography. It comes up from so deep like a needle.
I cant believe my first dive of the trip was with a whale shark. I have
never seen a whale shark before. It was not a big one just 6 meters long but
huge for a fish.
We had to swim against the current but it was worth it. I saw white tip
sharks sitting on the rocks and lobsters. huge lobsters in small caves in
the rocks.
The visibility was less on the next two dives and the whale shark had left
but what a great dive site this is.
I was warm in my 3 mill wetsuit and the dive master was wearing a shorty. I
love warm water diving.
That first dive of the day was the best. I saw a whale shark and white tip
sharks. The current was strong in places and not in others.
