First dive was very nice. We have a large pod of dolphins come right up to the groups and everyone on the boat was able to see dolphins, some had the dolphins come right up to them for several minutes. One friendly black manta stayed and circled just underneath the divers when it was time to ascend on the safety stop. Second dive -we started south and ran along side the rock to the west to look for sharks. We had Galapagos sharks and hammerheads, one nice and girthy, swam below and above our heads. There were three solitary mantas that converged from all angels of the rock. I kept pointing in different direction and shock heads head in disbelief with all the action he didn’t know where to look. It was a pleasure to be on the dive with the guests. The mantas kept playing close to the groups then depart into the blue then make showing again with the divers.
