Another awesome day at roca partida with perfect conditions!

Another awesome day at Roca Partida! The weather was just perfect, it was a sunny day, the sea was as flat as it gets around here, the water is still warm at 83f/28C and the visibility was around 100ft/30m!
In the morning we got some sharks, some silvertips and Galapagos on the north point of the rock, and a school of about 20 hammerheads that we got to follow from the north point all the way to the south point! They were a bit shy, but a couple of them got closer to us!
On the second dive we spotted a big school of skip jacks away from the rock with some silver tips and silky sharks chasing them, it is always amazing to see how fast they pass in the bail ball like formations passing back and forward paying attention and trying to figure out where they are going to come from next.
To finish the day we had a dive full of mantas witch is unusual at Roca Partida but this time there were five different ones around the rock with one of them a big black giant pacific manta being very friendly and curious with the divers.  Tonight we head to San Benedicto once again for our last day of diving in the archipelago before we start the second part of this trip in the Sea of Cortez, let’s see what surprises we get next!
