yesterday we did the last two dives in the canyon, visibility around 45 ft, medium current to the W, 23 C water temperature, good dives with lots of sharks, Silvertips, Galapagos and silky sharks on the cleaning station, lots of hammerheads, not in a big school but spread everywhere. Some mantas also swim by the area.

Today we moved early to the boiler, the first dive with no current, visibility around 60 ft, water temperature 77°F, mantastic dive, mantas are back to the boiler, at least five different mantas were playing with all the divers, one of the guests from manta trust said all of them just males. Also, they could see a pod of eight bottlenose dolphins with a baby, dolphins stay for a few minutes with our divers. Second dive visibility around 65-70 ft, no current, mantas for everybody, on this dive around seven or eight mantas were around with our divers, no dolphins on this time but lots of hammerheads, two groups at least saw the hammerheads. We will do two more dives here and then start sailing to Socorro island.
