A very good day of diving at El Cañon!

Today we had our first full day of diving of this trip and as usual it was very good, this time we started at El Cañon the water temperature was 76F/25C and visibility around 40ft/12m!
Even though the visibility was not the best we still got to see lots of stuff, on the first and second dive there was some current witch is good at this site because sometimes it brings the hammerheads close to the reef and that is exactly what happened today, five curious hammerhead sharks were passing close as we held on the reef after a bit we swam into the blue and we saw more about ten maybe more. On the second and third dive there was a big school of bonitas close to the boat with some juvenile silver tip sharks following them trying to have a snack. Of course the mantas also showed up today three very friendly ones on the third dive for over 40 minutes with us, all of this and the usual silky sharks that stay under the boat on this site.
Tomorrow we will go to El Boiler hopping for some mantas and dolphins if we are lucky, keep tuned to see what comes next!
