Even better conditions on our 2nd day at Roca!

Today we had our second day of diving at Roca Partida and once again it was awesome the conditions were even better than yesterday less wind and less swells, the water temperature was 80F/25C visibility about 100ft/30m and mild current.
On our first dive there were tons of schooling jacks and we spotted the hammerheads once again, but they were far away and a bit too deep for us this time as we ascended we had a giant pacific manta hanging out with us for 20 minutes looking at us and enjoying our bubbles! It was hard to end the dive because it would not go away
On the second dive we got a bit luckier with the hammerheads because they came up to 110ft/33m and we spotted them right at the beginning of the dive so we could enjoy this school of 30 of them with lots of juveniles!
For the last dive of the day we stayed by the wall checking out the emblematic ledges of Roca Partida where you can see lobsters, eels and white tip reef sharks hanging out all on top of each other this time there were up to 20 on one of the ledges.
So we finished one more day of diving with a nice bbq as the sun sets on this pristine water of the Pacific Ocean! Tonight we will be heading to Socorro Island hoping for some more amazing dives!
