Our second day at Roca Partida was full of shark action!

Second Day at Roca Partida and the weather conditions were still good, no wind and flat seas with a visibility of over 100´/30 m and a surface water temperature of 75F/23.8C. Roca is still full of shark action, this time we found schooling hammerhead sharks mixed with some galapagos sharks, but this time they were too deep to get close, they were around I would say 160´/46 m at least, because we pushed the breaks at 130´/40 m and the great visibility let us see the sharks were swimming underneath us.  Also for those that didn´t want to go that deep, we had good dives hanging with the massive school of white mouth jacks and the hundreds of whitetip reef sharks that swam around the rock.  After the third dive some divers went out on a panga adventure with their snorkels, and they had the chance to snorkel with some humpback whales!
Now we´re off to Socorro Island hoping to find good Manta encounters at Cabo Pearce. 
Hasta la vista
