  • False killer whales spotted at Roca Partida

    We of course had fantastic dives with plenty of sharks , including large Galapagos, Silvertips and Scalloped Hammerheads as well as several Manta sightings throughout the day. There were also the giant “bait balls” of Bonito Tuna and huge schools of various sized Yellowfin Tuna aswell. Pretty good going to be fair.
    However when you couple this with the several Humpback whales in the area breaching and playing around all day it gets a bit more special. We could even hear the Humpbacks singing on a couple of the dives it was absolutely beautiful.

  • Note from Nautilus Liveaboards

    “We are sad to report that a guest in his mid sixties on the Nautilus Explorer suffered a cardiac event at the end of a dive last week. The guest passed away despite our trained crew members performing first aid involving four hours of CPR and utilizing an AED and other emergency medical kit carried onboard, all in their concerted efforts to save his life.”

  • Vibrant Visibility at Roca

    Roca Partida was amazing today, with its vibrant schools of fish as usual, great visibility, and stunning wall formation; however, the current posed a slight challenge and many divers had to surface after going blue attempting to locate schooling hammerheads. Calm conditions made surface operations run smooth, without incident. Current had slowed down in the afternoon and we descended into schools of wrasse, jacks, white tip sharks, and silver tip sharks in the clear blue water of Roca Partida. Cruising along the imposing sheer volcanic rock wall we came across gangs of silky sharks, wahoo, and lobsters staring at us through crevices in the wall, and some hefty yellow fin tunas who seemed masters of the blue water column we were intruding. We surfaced in time to admire the orange sun setting below the horizon before waving goodbye to Roca Partida as we secured the back deck and started heading to Socorro Island. Looking forward plenty of mantas and dolphins tomorrow. – Divemaster Aldo
