  • Jacks, dolphins and mantas at El Boiler

    We had hundreds of different types of Jacks taking advantage of the current to hunt the smaller Creolfish. It was a great spectacle!! Especially as a dolphin and its young joined the fun and started chasing around the Jacks seemingly just for fun! After 5 minutes the mum and kid reunited swimming together belly to belly away into the blue; they looked just like they were having a little chuckle after scaring the Jacks.

  • Dolphins and mantas galore !

    he last two days have been dolphins and mantas galore! In the last seven dives, we have been lucky enough to be joined by dolphins on four and mantas on four. Yesterday, we were joined by a group of nine dolphins on the first dive just after our group got into the water. They stayed and played for a little while, swimming in circles around us and coming within inches of us. After about 10 minutes they swam off, but we were not sad about the dolphins leaving for long as we were soon after joined by a manta.

  • 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.

    Some Socorro Highlights

    📷 By the amazing Howard Hall We are wrapping up another fantastic trip to this beautiful archipelago. The weather has not been the most cooperative this time but we were able to get in some amazing dives none the less. We started out the trip on the sheltered side of San Benedicto at the Canyon, with some nice shark action and a few nice manta encounters. Even though the wind and waves were quite strong, we were able to make it to Roca Partida for one day of spectacular diving. Massive schools of fish including different species of jacks, tuna, Galapagos sharks, and the ever-present white tip reef sharks. Socorro island was a little slower with a few dolphin sightings at Cabo Pearce. For the last two days of the trip we did the Boiler and got some of our best dives on the very last day of this adventure. The first dive of the day was incredible, as soon as we descended there was a large chevron manta, followed by some dolphins swimming around it. Then another very friendly manta was hypnotizing us with a beautiful show when all of a sudden the dolphins came back, sneaking up from behind and…

  • Capt. Ted's Noon Report

    Anchored at boiler, clear skies diving: first dive was incredible with dolphins and mantas everywhere; guests didn’t know which way to look underwater. The pod of dolphins were probably over 50 scattered around the boiler. Second dive saw no dolphins but multiple mantas the whole time. All guests are happy! Summary: the Boiler is yet again the spot to be. it has been consistently great the last two trips. I decided to weigh anchor at Roca last night and head there Roca wasn’t bad and some guests were skeptical about moving because there was some action at Roca and they liked the spot. They are now convinced we made the right move! Happy Guests, Happy Crew! – NUS Captain Ted Schindler

  • Amazing check dive – Manta City!

    After a day at sea travelling from Los Cabos to San Benedicto, we began our diving with an amazing check dive at El Canyon, San Benedicto Is. No sooner had we given the okay to descend sign to our guide Mirko and descended over the Manta feeding station, one of the stars of the show glided over to see us and take a massage in our bubbles. Manta city! Later in the dive we saw two manta cruising above us, as well as a silvertip, whitetip and silky shark. A great start! – Darren, UK
