Location: Cuevitas/ Manta Highway, San Benedicto
Weather: Wind NW 10-15 Swell WNW 1-3 Vis 60-80ft Water Temp 78f
We went to Cuevitas in the morning for one dive because we came last to the dive site. Dive One- vis was not great due to swell. guests were able to see a manta pass by, some lobster, torpedo rays in the sand. Second dive we braved the armada and it was really worth it. It wasn’t what we saw as a whole but what each group saw!!! First group – Three mantas, turtle and a big whale sharks swimming over head. The guests were screaming with excitement at the end of the dive. Second Group – two individual tiger sharks. Nico our DM said that it was the largest shark he has seen after a whale shark. they were also lucky enough to see another tiger and hammer heads. Third Group – 6 hammer heads, dusky shark, a manta and four turtles!!!! This charter has been filled with so many things to see. We have had everything you can possibly see on this trip aside from the humpback whales in the area. There was even a rumor of a juvenile great white as well at Roca. Guests are alive with excitement which has been the case the entire week. All dives have produced good sightings.
