Today at Roca Oneal. Another beautiful now on Socorro, Sunny day with a light breeze and practically calm seas. What’s made today better are the dives!!! First dive amazing with 5 Mantas around all divers and 3 of them stayed almost all the whole dive. Also saw 5 hammerheads and a few divers that saw one whale shark. Everyone came up super happy from that dive. There was minimal current to E, Vis 90+ ft and water temp 24C. While everybody was getting ready for second dive, two Humpback whales passed 10 mts off the stern of the boat, everybody took their cameras quickly to record them. Second dive was totally different as the first dive, this time only one hammerhead showed up plus reef fishes and big lobsters. Current changed to SW and increased a little bit. Vis drcreased to 50-60 ft. Water temp 24C. Planning to finish the day here then going to Punta Tosca to dive tomorrow.
