Hello everybody

NGL is on the west side of Espiritu Santo. We are getting the guests ready to board the RHIB to go to the San Lorenzo channel to look for mobulas.

This morning we had a dive at la Lobera de San Francisco. The water was chilly, visibility was around 6-7 meters, sea lions were playful and nudibranchs were plenty for our guests. They were happy with the dive. Then we headed south all along the coast of the Baja towards San Juan de la Costa looking for the false killer whales. We did not find them but we encountered a baby humpback with its mother.

Then we saw a hammerhead shark at the surface, its fin coming out of the water, probably a smooth hammerhead on the look for mobulas. Chris could not fly his drone but we could see the shark from the boat. Then the mango wind reported 5 fin whales close by, but trip leader Berk didn’t wish to go whale watching. Instead, we headed south towards the channel of San Lorenzo, on the lookout for mobulas. Yesterday afternoon we looked for the false killer whales along the west coast of the bay but could not find them. We had an encounter with a humpback whale by sunset and then headed to San Jose to spend the night
