Best dive ever in Roca Partida!

“First time hammerhead sharks for us!. 🙂 Best dive ever in Roca Partida! Very professional operations! Thanks to the awesome crew!”

Before we knew it, we were surrounded by Silver Tips, Galapagos, Silky sharks, and Scalloped Hammerheads.

“SHARK SOUP! On our last dive at Roca Partida, we descended to roughly 60 ft where we were met by White Tip Reef sharks. Before we knew it, we were surrounded by Silver Tips, Galapagos, Silky sharks and Scalloped Hammerheads hunting schools of smaller fish. Every now and then, you would catch a glimpse of a giant Yellow Fin Tuna weaving it’s way toward the rock and back out to the blue. Two days in to the trip and this has been my favorite dive thus far!”

I have never seen so many fish and sharks at one time.

“I have been diving for quite some time and I am always amazed at the display that nature gives us, however, today at Roca Partida, I have never seen so many fish and sharks at one time. Almost made myself dizzy because I didn’t know where to look first! Silver tips galore, hammerheads and Galapagos sharks stole the show, but the sheer volume of fish- this Jack and that Jack and the humongous tuna were nothing to sneeze at. It was a great day!!”

It was like Shark Wonderland.

“Roca Partida from the surface to underwater has been mind-blowing. A Rock in the middle of the blue full of life. Full of sharks. The place looked unreal. We did 3 dives in this spot and it never got boring. The formations and coral was something I have never seen. And the variety of sealife was a lot.Our divemaster was great at spotting the best we could see. We spotted since our first dive, hundred silver tips sharks , Galapagos sharks, hammerheads sharks, white tip sharks. Caves with lots of whitetip sharks resting. It was like shark wonderland. Besides the amazing sharks, we spotted massive yellow fin tunas, all sort of jacks & a couple of octopus.”
