Yesterday the last two dives were good, on the third dive visibility changed to around 60 ft. Two chevron mantas and one black manta were present on this dive and a school of big yellowfin tunas. The last dive yesterday was a private dive because only 5 divers wanted to dive. They could see a few mantas (coming and going), a big school of jacks, some lonely big tunas and a few silver tips. Today we started the first dive at 0815 with no current for the first dive. The action was super good, at least 5 friendly mantas, one black, and 4 chevrons the entire dive. Some of the divers could see one single hammerhead in the distance, big yellowfin tunas, some silver tips, and the always present white tips. On the second dive, the conditions were almost the same but with a light current to the E. The action was great with 5 or more mantas. During the dive, they came up to the divers and disappeared into the distance. One group of divers could see a small group of around 5 hammerheads, and the other group could see a few more, around 12 hammers, with some big tunas and silver tips too. Lets see what else we can see on the next two dives.
