Yesterday we finished at The Canyon. On the third dive, there was just one friendly manta that stayed with the divers for around 25 minutes, some silvertip sharks, and some Galapagos sharks. On the last dive, there was a school of silvertips (both big and juveniles), some Galapagos sharks, one hammerhead and one blacktip. Today we moved early to go to The Boiler. The first dive was great, we saw two black mantas and two chevron mantas, one silvertip, some Galapagos sharks, and around 15 dolphins hunting! It was a really good dive. The second dive here at The Boiler was good too with 10 minutes of manta action at the end of the dive for one group, one dusky shark, Galapagos shark, one black manta just passing, and a lot of jacks.
