Today we are at the canyon with a Nautilus Party. We are sharing the site with the Explorer and Belle Amie. Two morning dives with great shark action. First dive was amazing… A school of 30 hammerheads at the receiver. Divers were at the rocks and some hammerheads passed really close to them, plus they saw Galapagos, Silver Tips and a couple of Duskies. They could see also a couple of dolphins. They didn’t know where to look. It was great. Second dive was as great as the first dive but this time no dolphins. Instead a school of hammerheads. Everyone was so excited. The wind is still strong and we are having swell coming from the West. Yesterday afternoon the dives at Cabo pearce were better. There was a school of tuna mixed with a school of hammerheads. After our departure from Cabo Pearce, we had a rough ride to San Benedicto, but everyone seemed to be OK. Nobody got seasick. Planning to stay today here at the canyon to finish the dives and try the boiler tomorrow.
