Status: Anchor at SW side of Isla San Idelfonso
Weather: Wind SSE 8-10 kts. Sea 2-5 ft long swell

The sun came back today, no clouds.
Had a great ending yesterday at San Pedro Martir. No current, very good visibility, and a lot of sea lions. Departed from there after the last dive, on our way to San Idelfonso Island. The wind decreased considerably, and there were only 5-9 ft long swell, so weather was better than expected. Arrived this morning at the island to the SW side. 2 NM before arrive to the island we start to see that the water was green, but when we arrive at the anchorage area, we spot a school of dolphins just at the SW point, there were lots of birds too, flying straight to the water to fish. So divers couldn’t wait to get into the water and go with the dolphins. As soon as all divers were in the water dolphins disappeared, as well the birds. Divers came up after 40 min later. They only could see moray eels, jacks, and some fishes. When divers came out the water, dolphins came back, so we took divers on a ride to take pictures closely of the dolphins.
