We had a great afternoon dive at San Benitos with the sun setting and plenty of things to see. Tons of Spiny Lobsters hid under the rocks while the fading sun light brought around the playful sea lions. Every had a wonderful dive.We headed over to Cedros last night under the cover of a full moon. Dolphins launched out of the water while creating bioluminescence trails in the water as they raced the boat to Cedros. The ghosts at the bow continues with us for some way. When we arrived last night we could hear the sounds of barks coming from shore as there was a large colony of sea lions waiting for us. We made two dives in shallow waters with thousands of bait fish blanketing the waters next to shore where there was plenty of sea lion pups and adults basking in the over cast sun. There were also some Elephant Seals laying higher up the shore. Guests had such a great time and they were greeted by 40 or 50 Sea Lion pups wiggling their way into the water to greet the guests. We are on our way to Roca Partida after a wonderful time in the north. Guests just finished lunch and are enjoying a few beers and cocktails as we make our way south Guests are really happy /crew good.
