Status: At Anchor at The Roca Partida. 245 ft deep

Today at Roca Partida sharing the site with our friends on the Nautilus Belle Amie. Just finishing the second dive. It has been a good day at the rock. Weather has been perfect today, all morning with calm winds and a long swell 3-5 ft and a clear a nice sky. Winds just started to pick up around 10-14 kts and with them, some white caps. First dive was amazing because a juvenile whale shark was around the rock, divers just focused on that. There was also a lot of reef white-tip sharks, a few galapagos sharks and some silvertips, 5 Big yellowfin tunas and some wahoos. Slight current to SW. After the first dive and breakfast the same juvenile whale shark came underneath the boat and the stern, divers took their fins and mask and jumped in the water to snorkel with the whale shark. Everybody was so happy. Second dive, was just as good as the first one, this time without whale shark because it was still next to the boat. But for this dive they could now see 4 Hammerheads and one Mobula, plus the galapagos and silvertips sharks. Yesterday at the canyon, vis started to decrease, and the action was the same at the morning. Planing to depart tonight to Socorro. Stay tuned!
