4 to 6 mantas on every dive on our first full day back at San Benedicto!

It was our second day in San Benedicto, yesterday we did the check out dive so today we had a full day of diving!  We started at 7:30 am diving at “El Boiler” where the water temperature was 77ºF/26ºC and the visibility 60ft/18m. As soon as we went down, twelve dolphins were on the pinnacle right where the school of big eye jacks was swimming; also the first Pacific Giant Manta of the day was swimming under the dolphins. We had the dolphins coming and going during the dive, and five mantas chasing our bubbles the 60 minutes the dive lasted, going from one diver to the other. We did four dives today, with more dolphins on the second dive and four to six mantas on every dive. White tip reef sharks hanging out on the reef, octopuses, lobsters, green moray eels and schools of different types of fishes everywhere. Today was a good day of diving; the divers had the opportunity to take pictures or just relax have fun and enjoy their special moment with the mantas following the bubbles we made and the dolphins going around the divers and being playful. Tonight we are heading to our next dive destination “Roca Partida”, so we can take advantage of this nice weather before the wind starts rising.
