This morning weather became better, the winds calmed down a bit. All morning it has been cloudy, but an hour ago clouds started dissipating. First dive today at the canyon was good. A group of 5 dolphins played for a while with one group of our divers, but the highlight of the dive was to see 10 silver tips hunting some jacks at the receiver. On the second dive, we dove at the manta highway. At the beginning of the dive, when divers were descending, four hammerheads passed by. A Chevron Manta passed slowly by modeling for the divers. One black manta arrived with one of the groups and stayed to play with them for the rest of the dive. The other group could saw a tiger shark at the safety stop. Yesterday afternoon, visibility decreased around to 30-40 ft and action slowed down. Tonight after dinner we are going to depart to Roca Partida.
