4 friendly giant mantas helped close our trip at San Benedicto!

Today we had our last day of diving on this extended trip and we finished it off at El Boiler, the visibility was great varying from 60ft/18m to 100ft/30m and the water temperature was 74f/23C with just a mild current in the morning!
On the first dive of the day we just saw one manta pass by quickly but what was nice about this dive was a massive school of bonitas that passed by close to the pinnacle and then went under the boat, there were some silky sharks feeding on it and at one point as we were following it the whole school turned and headed straight toward us, later on this dive we also spotted a hammerhead swimming very slowly in shallow waters.
The other dives of the day were very similar we got to see white tips, jacks, lobsters eels, octopus and of course the main thing about El Boiler the mantas we saw 4 different ones trough out the day and this time all of them displaying the same behavior staying in really shallow waters almost on the surface close to the pinnacle going on top of the divers to enjoy their bubbles it was awesome and we had really long dives because it was all very shallow.
Now it is time to wait to see what happens in our next trip.
