It’s a great day at the Boiler, Light breeze, mostly calm seas and sunny skies, and the best of all, great dives!!! Our original plan was to dive the canyon but I decided to go to Boiler, which has been awesome here. First dive was a mild current to the North and a good visibility around 80-90 ft, everyone could see a single Black manta, some reef white tips, two groups could also see a small pod of dolphins that stayed for a couple of minutes. The other group didn’t see dolphins but they saw one hammerhead and one tiger shark just for a minute. Everyone came out of the water so happy. But second dive came with a new surprise, a juvenile whale shark that was circling around the rock, 3 Mantas, 2 Chevron and one Black, which stayed playing with the divers. Divers are happier now, saying that this was the best dive of the trip. On this dive current disappeared, but visibility decreased to around 60 ft. Yesterday at roca partida we had a good dive with the same school of tunas and jacks, also on one dive there was a school of galpagos sharks, around 20, with some silvertips between them.
