This is the trip of dolphins

Punta Tosca – We started off jumping close to the wall. While swimming towards the receiver, several whitetips crossed our way. Suddenly, a hammerhead appeared in the blue and disappeared as fast as he came. When swimming to the inner side of the lava finger, several whitetips were circling between the rocks, curious to find out what these black things were, making these strange bubbles. Almost as the hammerhead, a big manta, followed by blind passengers below him, showed up swimming gently above us and disappeared again in the blue.

Two stingrays were sleeping on the ground and the lobsters were providing us some nice camera shots. Towards the end of our dive we spotted a sea turtle swimming in the distance. It was a very nice first morning dive.


Yesterday we finished a most excellent two days of diving at Roca Partida with a wine and cheese sunset party on the top deck. It was incredibly calm and sunset was followed by endless stars. It was hard to convince everyone that it was time to have dinner.

“Today we started off the day with more dolphins. This is the trip of dolphins.”

We have had dolphins everywhere we have dove so far. Hammerheads and a friendly manta also joined the fun on the last dive. Visibility is excellent and the current has been light.


Eso fue mi segundo viaje in este barco y a los mismos sitios. Como la primera vez en diciembre 2016 los buceos eran excelente y el equipo muy amable. Pero el barco mejoro bastante y todas las embarcaciones en la zodiac pasaron sin problemas. Felicito al dueño y la tripulación por esta mejoría y espero que continúan así.

“Muchísimas gracias por esta oportunidad y la experiencia fabuloso.”
