We arrived from Punta Tosca at 0545 and anchored up at 0600 with a couple other boats in area. Our first dive of the day started at 0845 and was well worth the wait. Our divers immediately encountered playful dolphins near the surface of the dive followed by white tips on RP balconies, numerous Galapagos, silkies, and schooling hammerheads in the deep. Current was minimal and multitudes of fish swarmed the divers as they made their way around the rock. Visibility was reported as great, 30-40M, and water temp reported at 25C. Our second dive is departing at 1215, and divers are presently excited and preparing for it. Yesterday afternoon proved to be very good at Punta Tosca, with great visibility 30+M and minimal current. The groups witnessed large groups of schooling hammerheads and one experienced diver (dive instructor) claimed that the second dive ” may have been her best ever” with over 20 Min of close viewing a large school 40-50+ school of hammerheads. We stayed at P.T. for dinner, and then conducted our silkie snorkel which was a fantastic hit with our adventurous divers.
