  • Bad Weather, If at First You Don’t Succeed…

    We started Dive day 2 by checking in at the Navy base and then picking up three underwater photographers from the World Wildlife Federation who had been waiting for us at Socorro Island during the storm (unable to dive). From there we went to Cabo Pearce. Throughout all 3 dives at Cabo Pearce we could hear the humpback whales singing in the background. In between dives two and three several guests were out snorkeling when a humpback whale mom and calf happened along and checked out the snorkellers. The encounter was, of course, an incredible experience.

  • Night Snorkelling with Silky Sharks at Socorro Island

    It’s all good fun but it is mandatory that everyone in the water remain close to the dive ladder, calm and watchful, and ready to get out of the water if needed. We once experienced a flying fish darting right through our divers and boinking itself on the head against our steel transom.  I can tell you that a fluttering and stunned flying fish on the surface is like a dinner bell for silky sharks – even if they have to charge right through all of our divers!!

  • Full Inspection at the Navy Base on Socorro Island

    A couple of Hammerheads and two curious mantas came by the ascent line. Our third dive of the day was a so called “washing machine” dive. Lets just say that some did not appreciate it so much and others had fun playing with the current, finding the slacks and using it to their favor. Not easy with current. But learning it and reading it you can find a lot of benefits with considerably more activity in marine life.  Last dive in the day we went inside and had a bit of meditation dive. The biggest surprise of all was the unafraid lobsters we found in every little crack.

  • Slow Trip for Giant Manta Ray Sightings

    We spent the rest of the day at Cabo Pearce where the diving was very good. Divers saw a large school of hammerhead sharks above the outer cleaning station (in approximately 50 feet of water), smaller groups of hammerhead sharks as well as Galapagos and silky sharks.
