This Morning we are at the Canyon sharing the site with the Nautilus Explorer. Going to do 3 dives today. Currently diving our second dive, First dive was great! Divers could see at least 3 different mantas, several hammerheads, galapagos sharks and silvertips. We saw dolphins from the boat but at our time to dive dolphins were gone. This has been one of the best dives we have had so far on the trip, everyone came back to the boat very happy because they could see what they wanted. Yesterday at Cabo Pearce on our last dive was one of the best as well, because the mantas showed up and stayed with the divers most of the dive. Dolphins joined the mantas almost at the end , so everyone could have a close encounter with dolphins. We went to Navy base after our last dive, everything was ok. On our way back to Cabo Pearce winds picked up significantly around 18 kts bringing with it wind rain. We had our silky snorkel with rain, but that didn’t stop half of the divers from getting in the water and snorkeling with the silkies. At one point we could count 7 silkies at once.
