Approximately at 23:45 hours we anchored at las cuevitas, a dive site on the coast of Isla San Benedicto. We rebriefed our guests in regard of safety rules and made a briefing about the dive site… Finally the shark group hit the water at 7:15 followed by Mantas and Dolphins. All the divers came out of their “check dive” with a big smile, we had a Manta, White Tip, Silkies, a lot of Jacks and a Turtle… what an amazing check out dive. For the second dive the captain decided to change the site and to go to the boiler… Absolute perfect decision, our divers saw more Mantas, Hammerheads, Galapagos Sharks, Silver Tips, Dolphins and even a Tiger Shark, what a blast… Everybody is mindblowed and amazed!!! After diving we gave a Manta ID introduction to be able to identified the Mantas we will see over the next days. Then we had our famous Belle Amie TACO NIGHT on the sun deck, everybody is there talking about the day, everybody is relaxed and happy and can’t wait for more diving, but first want to have one or even tree tacos served by our fantastic galley crew. The first day was absolutely amazing and I hope our guests are not to spoiled… because we already saw a lot during this first day. Under a wonderful night sky the day turns to an end and slowly the upper deck gets calmer and people go to sleep and dream about this trip of a lifetime. Revillagigedo rules!!!
