Red Tide at Bahía de los Ángeles

Today we made it all the way to Bahía de los Ángeles only to discover a red tide was all around the coast. We proceeded to journey to an island further offshore in search of better water for diving. We were able to do three dives at Isla Estanque, where were encountered our first sharks of the trip! One group saw a nurse shark and most of the divers also saw angel sharks. With the cold water, many people opted for a walk along the beach near the island. All said and done, it was another pleasant day in the Sea of Cortez.

We arrived at Bahía de los Ángeles but unfortunately we had red tide so we could not snorkel with the whale sharks, however we moved to Angel de la Guardia Island where we had 3 dives there. It is an amazing place where you can see angel sharks with visibility from 15ft to 20ft and water temperatures of  60˚F. We did some drift diving with the strong currents, it was great! Tonight we are heading back south in the Sea of Cortez for more adventure.

El dia no comenzo como queriamos ya que los esperados tiburones ballenas no estaban en la bahia de los angeles, muy temprano para ellos pero si estaba la increibe isla Angel de la Gaudra para brindarnos unos 3 increibles buceos es verdad que un poco fria pero con mucha vida y la verdad una gran sopresa de un tiburon angel. Hermoso dia y gran final de buceo
