A beautiful 2nd day of diving at Roca Partida!
three dives with top notch conditions for Day 2 at Roca! The water
temperature was 77F with visibility over 50' along with a very mild
current from the north. This gave everyone the opportunity to stay
near the rock and get close to Galapagos, silkies, and silver tip
sharks! The rock was full of colorful fishes and also schools of
smaller tunas, wahoo, and some big yellow fin tunas chasing the
smaller fish! Because the dive conditions were so good, we had a
chance to stay over 50 minutes next to the rock waiting for the
sharks to show up! On the southern side of the rock, a school of
hammerheads were swimming at 70' of water, one of our guests can
counter really fast, and he counted 68 hammerheads! Thanks to the
conditions, we had the option to stay close to the rock for those who
don't like to kick when they are swimming, or for those who like to
take pictures of the fishes, there was the option to swim out into
the blue and look for sharks! As always Roca gave us a beautiful day
of diving with the plus that we didn't have to deal with the stronger
current we had yesterday! Now we are celebrating a birthday, we're
going to have a mexican style party with tequila and a nice dinner!
