Hammerheads, mantas, dolphins, we couldn't have asked for a better end to this trip!

We just finished another trip and it could not have ended in a better way! We dove at Cabo Pearce at Socorro Island the water was very clear 100ft/30m visibility and 76F/25C. The first dive was the best one there was strong current so we drifted along the reef passing by a couple of mantas, when we got to the drop off we spotted a big school of hammerheads and 10 of them got close to us at this point we realized that there were 3 mantas on top of us and 4 dolphins following us we stayed with the dolphins for about 20 minutes and after the dive did some snorkeling with them!
The second dive we had some mantas again but they didn’t stay for very long, then on the third dive the dolphins showed up again! This timey two of them were being very curious and cruising around the cleaning station as a manta hovered on top of them. On the surface interval before the last dive we saw some whales close to the boat but they passed by and disappeared quickly. Now we head back to Cabo with the calmest sea conditions we have had all season no wind and no waves!
