Everything checked out on our first dive, followed by a bbq on the bow!

Buenas Tardes everyone!
We traveled most of the day and arrived at the fabled Isla San Benedicto around 4pm. We have a great mix of nationalies aboard this trip from all over the world. We have divers from the U.S., U.K., Turkey, Russia, and the Ukraine. Everyone was excited to get in the water during our "shake out dive" at El Fondeadero. The water was a little cool at 72F (22C) and 45 ft. vis (15m). We always do a checkout dive to make sure our gear is all operating properly, and it gives everyone a chance to get in the groove of things so the rest of the dives are pure enjoyment! The reef was covered in fish of all types, we even spotted a few scorpionfish and moray eels! A few divers were entertained by an octopus for awhile and there were lobsters all over the place. A pleasant dive and now we`re ready for the real thing tomorrow at El Canyon.
The sun is setting now and we`re just about to sit down to a delicious Mexican style bbq compliments of Chef Tony.
Until Next Time,
Dave Valencia
