A bit colder this morning than usual. Water temperature also dropped a
few degrees compared to yesterday’s dives at Socorro.
The wind from the north creates swells that hit the front part of the zodiac as
we travel to the rock, so we can really feel water temperature has changed however we know below the surface everything changes!
Silky sharks and dolphins
A second and third dive we really enjoyed it since the current increased a
bit more we stayed in the protected area, east! The amount of fish that
gather here has no words to describe, the number of white tips as well, a few
mantas also showed up to stick around for some time, water temp made us feel
cold towards the end of dives 23℃/73℉.
It is 22:00 hrs during night watch we see lots of silky sharks breaking the
surface with dorsal fin around the Solmar V in a feeding frenzy hunting flying fish!
