Today we dove two lesser known dive sites at Socorro Island!

Today we did our first two dives at Punta Tosca the weather conditions were great visibility about 100ft/30m and the water temperature was 76f/25C! On this site we went along the wall and spotted one hammerhead shark, one green turtle, as usual on this dive site the schools of parrot fish, and the endemic clarion angel fish, the best part of the dive was towards the end when a bottle nose dolphin came to the divers on the safety stop!
For the third and fourth dive we moved to Roca Oneil, the visibility and the temperature were the same, here we went to check out the beautiful underwater arch you have on this site and there were 4 silvertip sharks right on the entrance of it and some yellow fin tunas passing by, also a very friendly manta that stayed with us for over 20 minutes!  Tomorrow we are going to Roca Partida hoping fore some good weather and hopefully some whales!
