  • Two great whites together in Guadalupe

    Turtles, Sea Lions and, of Course, Sharks at Guadalupe

    Once again we had action non-stop all day long. At one point you could see 6 sharks in the same frame, but we had at least 10 different sharks throughout the day.

    Had blasted out two good dives in the morning, then topped it off in the afternoon in this wicked little spot, not gonna tell you the name because its for me to know and for you to find out.  Anyways, in this quaint little spot, there are some rocks coming out of the water and you can do a circular pattern around the rock, but, there’s a swim-through that penetrates this rock from one side to the other (about a twelve meter swim through the tunnel) The thing is chock-full of mini sardines, all shimmering‚ their lives away!!  You can see that there’s light at the end of the tunnel, but you can’t see through because of all the fishies. Wicked, simply wicked. Gotta admit, its kinda narrow in there, plenty of lateral room (bout a meter and a half), but only about a meter high, just enough room to comfortably get through (because you got the tank on your back, and I got a steel tank because I’m a scuba stallion, and those suckers are big).  Got that sucker on the GoPro also!! The thing about the GoPro is that you gotta take it with you all the time,…

  • my best dive in my life! los ilotes – march 22, 2011

    Great Day! Saw a lot of playful sealions trying to bite in our suits, masks, cameras, imitating our bubbles and being childish clinging to our legs. Also some nice jawfish big groupers and so on. The water was quite cold but playing with mammals is totally different from interaction with fish, so it was worth every second of shivering 😉 Annette and Birte from Germany Sea of Cortez, at this time of the year is full of surprises, like 17C water and low visibility. Nevertheless it is a great feeling going back to the place where I have done most of my diving and watching supersize groupers and a huge schools of sardines. There were so many sardines that the layer from the surface to the rocks was used by the fish as shelter, whenever a sealion passed through the sardine it level a tunnel of fish behind, the pups where so playful that we were having a hard time to keep our hoods on our heads and our fins on our feet. going back 7 years to the same place (Los Islotes) there was not so much fish that’s when it was legal to fish or recollect, is amazing…
