Strong current to North Today at The Boiler. Dives has been good, but not so good as previous days. Before the first dive we saw dolphins near the boiler, but when divers went in the water, there were no dolphins around. 2 mantas and a few Galapagos, silvertips and silkies sharks. All divers had to stay on the north side of the rock the whole dive because of the strong current coming from South. By second dive, same current and same side of the rock. Only one Manta this time and they were able to see one hammerhead shark. A big steel bouy passed floating nearby the area drifted by the current to North. Underneath that bouy a lot of life, sharks, rainbow runners and other fishes, and a lot of birds having a feast. Gallant Lady arrived to the boiler this morning and now we are sharing the site with them. Checking on weather forecast, looks like our two last diving days will be a little windy, so our plan for tonight is depart to Roca Partida to dive there tomorrow before it gets windy there.
