We all are very to happy come back to Socorro islands and are still enjoying the warm water temp which has varied between 82-84ºF. So on the second day of the trip we did 4 dives 2 of them at ¨EL CAÑON.¨ There was not current at all making for an easy dive, but on the other side of the coin, we need current to see big numbers of sharks! We saw a few hammer heads, some white tips but we had a lot of fun with 2 mantas that stayed for the whole dive. We also did a drift dive! For those that haven't done a drift dive before, It feels just like flying, very cool!! We drifted over the entire dive area and only saw more white tips with reef fish every where!
We decided to try different dive site, in search of more mantas, and one chevron male was accompanying us also for most our entire 3rd dive!
Dive 4 was at the infamous "El boiler" to finish the day! It was fun to play with surge! So we went all around el boiler and saw hammer head, white tip reef sharks, lots of lobsters were there too, but the mantas were a bit shy. At the same time as we were diving el Boiler, we had a group of 6 divers that opted out of diving and went to snorkeling with a pod of false killer whales for 25 to 30 minutes!
