Departed from Roca Partida yesterday after lunch to Clarion. We had a really nice and smooth ride to Clarion. We arrived this morning to the island at 0700 hrs and contacted with navy base. They told us to come at 0900 hrs for the inspection. Navy and CONANP park ranger came onboard, all good. As soon as we finished the inspection we started diving on the south of the island West of the navy base. Dive was ok, visibility is great, water is very clear, Temp 24C, and the is no current. At the beginning of the dive, one of the groups saw a few dolphins which stayed with divers for 10 min, the other group saw one big olive ridley turtle, plus local reef fishes, Clarion angle fish, surgeon fish, parrot fish. Looking forward for the next dives of the day to try different dive sites.
