Galapagos sharks, dolphins, and mantas at Roca partida!

Today we dove Roca Partida once again, and the conditions were excellent very calm waters no waves and almost no wind the water temperature was 76F/25C and the visibility more than 130ft/40m!
The good news is that the sharks are still around on the first dive was when we had the best experience this time as soon as we got down close to the rock about 100ft/30m deep a school of at least 30 Galapago sharks passed by very slowly at the end of the dive a couple of dolphins passed by quickly. On the second dive the sharks were still around but a bit deeper but we still got to enjoy the big schools of jacks and some tunas that were passing by. The third and last dive of the trip started a bit slow but at the end when we were drifting in the blue water a school of 10 Galapagos came right at us in shallow waters followed by two mantas that made us company on the safety stop.
Tomorrow we will be diving Roca Partida again hopefully with some more sharks!
