Yesterday we finished our third dive at The Boiler and had 6 or 7 different mantas with us during the entire dive that were super close and friendly. One group could also see a small school of 8 hammerhead sharks. On the last dive, there was just one chevron manta that stayed with the divers the whole dive, along with one hammerhead and one blacktip shark. Today we arrived at Roca Partida around 0630. During the first dive, there was a big school of thousands of bonitos with silkies, a big school of juvenile yellowfin tunas, some Galapagos sharks, some silvertips, and at the end, one chevron manta in the deep. On the second dive, there was one Galapagos shark, the same big schools of bonitos with some tunas, and 2 silvertip sharks.
