    Weather: Sunny day
    Status: Underway to Cabo San Lucas, 155 nm to go

    Yesterday we finished at The Boiler and the manta action never stopped! During the third and fourth dives, 4 or 5 mantas were playing with the divers the whole time. Everybody was fascinated and happy. We moved to the bay north of the Lava Fingers and we had cheese and wine on the sundeck watching the sunset to end the day.

    Yesterday we finished at Cabo Pearce and the second dive was the best of the day with 3 or 4 mantas playing with the divers the entire dive. One of the groups could also see a group of around 7-8 dolphins but just for a couple of minutes. During the last dive yesterday, one group could see a school of around 20 or more hammerheads. One chevron manta was present on the last dive too. After dinner, we had the silky snorkel and it was one of the best ever with 6-8 dolphins around with the silkies. Today we started the first dive at The Boiler. It was a very nice dive with 6-8 dolphins coming and going during the entire dive along with 3 chevron mantas. The second dive was good too, with 3 chevron mantas, one big turtle, and one juvenile tiger shark. So far there has been really good action here at The Boiler.

    Yesterday we finished at Roca Partida. On the third dive, the divers could see some Galapagos sharks, some silvertips, and a lot of yellowfin tuna and bonitos. The last dive was not much different, with the same action, including Galapagos sharks, tuna and bonitos. But, just at the end in the NE corner of the rock, a small school of around 12-15 silvertips appeared. Today, we arrived at Cabo Pearce around 0630 and had a very good first dive with good action on the dive site. There were at least 4 mantas playing with the divers and one group could also see a hammerhead!

    Yesterday we finished our third dive at The Boiler and had 6 or 7 different mantas with us during the entire dive that were super close and friendly. One group could also see a small school of 8 hammerhead sharks. On the last dive, there was just one chevron manta that stayed with the divers the whole dive, along with one hammerhead and one blacktip shark. Today we arrived at Roca Partida around 0630. During the first dive, there was a big school of thousands of bonitos with silkies, a big school of juvenile yellowfin tunas, some Galapagos sharks, some silvertips, and at the end, one chevron manta in the deep. On the second dive, there was one Galapagos shark, the same big schools of bonitos with some tunas, and 2 silvertip sharks.

    The day is beautiful and calm with an almost flat ocean. Our first dive was a dream or at least that is what all the guests said… that their dream came true! They got to dive with lots of dolphins and five mantas, all at once! It was mother nature at its best. The guests are happy and so am I. During the second dive, there were some more mantas, a huge tiger shark, and the whales singing. I was in the water and you can just hover in the water column and enjoy the tune, it went on all dive long.

    The diving this morning has been wonderful! We had schools of hammerheads, silvertips, Galapagos and whitetip sharks. Divemaster Luis and one of our guests were also able to share a very special close encounter with a mother and calf humpback whale. We are planning to do two more dives here at Canyon.

    Yesterday we finished with two more dives at The Boiler. During the third dive, there was a lot of manta action with 3 or 4 mantas playing with the bubbles for 30 minutes! There was also one big turtle on this dive. On the last dive, there were fewer mantas but it was still good with 2 or 3 different mantas around. Two of the groups could see a few hammerheads as well. We slept at The Canyon last night and this morning we started running back to Cabo and it’s been nice and smooth sailing.
