Roca reminds us why it's our favorite dive site!

Roca Partida was once again off the charts, and reminds us just about every trip why it's our favorite dive site! We were surrounded by fish all around us 360°, from our bottom depth to the surface! Our divers had a great time, for some of them, this is their first time in the pacific ocean, so the amount of sharks we saw were a pretty big deal... and we saw a LOT of sharks! First of all it we had a parade of Galapagos sharks at all depths, females and males! Some of them were very big, and they can seem intimidating, but they're nothing to be afraid of!  We you find yourself in the middle of a school of galapagos sharks like we had, and all you have to do is relax and take in the beautiful streamlined sharks gliding right next to you! All of a sudden coming at us out of the blue was a massive school of bonitos chased by silky sharks! It's hard to describe the sensation of being surrounded by thousands of fish, and then seconds later the school has passed and they're gone.  During our safety stop we found a mobula ray swimming circles around us!  May the beautiy and freedom of sharks inspire your life, and we should always protect them!
