3 different sites on our last day at San Benedicto!

Today we woke up at San Benedicto, the first dive site we visited was “El Boiler”. Descending on the mooring line we found the surge and current to be very strong. As the divers reached the bottom they were holding with both hands and rolling from side to side. One of the divers, Dave, held with both hands and let the surge take him 360 degrees like a gymnast on an uneven bar. Everybody came back from the dive excited because of the new experience, excited and happy!
We decided to move to the other side of the island; the second dive was in a place call “El Fondeadero”, the ocean conditions were much better on this site; the water temperature around 77ºF/25ºC and 60ft/18m visibility. We saw a couple of hammerhead sharks, some white tips and one big fat Galapagos shark.
For the third dive we jumped in the pangas to get to the dive site “El Cañon”, where a school of hammerheads were waiting for us; also a Pacific Giant Manta stayed with us for a long time. After lunch we went back to “El Cañon” for the last dive of the trip, we saw again schooling hammerheads, some Galapagos sharks and a Silky shark was chasing us at 40 feet of water! The divers had the opportunity to take some great shots of him. Now we are heading back to Cabo San Lucas, everyone had a nice dinner made by our chef Tony and now everybody is relaxing watching a movie or playing cards and talking about the excellent days of diving they had onboard the Solmar V as we make our way back to Cabo.Thank you to all our guests for the great moments we had on this trip and for letting us be part of your vacations!
