Dive 2 was better than dive one, with the presence of a manta visiting the divers at safety stops, numerous shark species, such as silkies and a galapagos making appearances. The divers noted lobsters stacked one on another in the crevices and got some great pictures of the white tips on the balconies. the Vis was reported by some to be 50-60′ near the rock, and others 70-90’ away from the rock. yesterday afternoon dives were excellent at Cabo Pearce, with continued Manata presence on every dive. All guests and crew are happy.
