NGL west of Espiritu Santo, this morning.

We did a dive with the sea lions of el Pardito, in front of San Francisco. Lots of interactions with the divers and snorkelers, very friendly sea lions, and good visibility. Upon returning from the dive, I read the news that NUS had found sperm whales in the Cerralvo channel. They were 65nm away from our position, heading south which would put them outside of our reach so I decided not to send the rhib and pursue the search on the northern part of the Bay of la Paz.

Yesterday afternoon we did the check-up dive on the Candelero in esp Santo. 4 of the divers are new to diving and were comfortable with DM Esteban taking care of them. the other 6 are more experienced and explored more of the dive site with DM Rouslam. 1 guest Alex does not dive and just snorkels.

After the dive, we received a report from NUS that they had found a pod of dolphins and headed toward the position. Guests were able to swim a few times with the dolphins and enjoyed seeing them doing acrobatics jumps in the wake of the NGL.
