HI folks! We had a wonderful third day at Roca Partida!
A little bit of current from south made our dive more interesting. On the south point a huge school of black and cottonmouth jacks blocked the wall from sight in some areas and it wasn't visible the whole time! It's always exciting to see galapagos, silver tips and silkies shark swimming through the school of fish not noticing we were there and then suddenly they spot us and turn around and swim away. We spent quit a while at the south point then drifted to north a bit. Off the rock we found hammerheads, more galapagos and silkies! We had a dive time of about 40 minutes, and for about 30 of those 40 minutes we had dolphins in front of us! All over the rok silver tips were going crazy in a frezy for food! Green morey eels were packed on top of each other in the crevices along the rock, and the white tip reef sharks were very active. To seal the deal, one chevron manta surprised us and glided over our heads along with the current! We had everything except a whale shark!
The second dive was just as good as the first, but add a HUGE whale shark that slowed down enough that she let us swim along side her! The third dive we followed the same dive pattern from south to north, drifting with the current, and it was just incredible as the 2nd dive, we even found the female whale shark again! There weren't as many sharks as the previous dive, but to make up for it mother nature provide us with big schooling yellow fin tuna! So much fun today!
