After almost two hours at the surface we did the third dive; one more time we went further out around the reef into the blue expecting to find some interesting animals. We started to look for schools of fishes; suddenly into the cold murky water one hammerhead showed up, then another one and then a school of fifty or so sharks at eighty feet of water!! We started to follow them slowly and not to close so they could get us to us, they gradually came near and some of them swam around the divers. They were moving from 80 to 50 feet/24 to 15 meters, in the cold-water region so we spent more than 20 minutes with them and wish we could have stayed longer if it wasn't for our our decompression limits! Finally we ascended to do our safety stop and at 30 feet/10 meters, a big tiger shark came right at our divers!
When we came back to the boat the lunch was ready and a delicious burger was waiting for us, with ice cream for dessert. The last dive we gave a shot again to try to find the school of sharks. On our way down, we spotted two hammerhead sharks and one Galapagos shark. We continued swimming heading to the rock where it’s possible to spot the sharks and we found some more hammerheads, but now they were too deep for us, so we just saw them from top. This was the end to a phenomenal trip, and now we are heading back to Cabo San Lucas with nice shots and good memories from Revillagigedo Archipelago.
Until next trip…
