Dec 8, 2016

Today we are at San Benedicto, back at "el Boiler" having great action with mantas and dolphins.

The conditions are good, with 20 meters / 60 feet of visibility, warm water 25 C / 78 F, no current and a little bit of swell at the surface.

On the first dive we saw a big group of 20 dolphins swimming next to the divers at 90 feet / 30 meters reaching the surface and diving again to get clean by the endemic clarion fishes. For the next to dives the dolphins didn´t appear but we got to see 7 different mantas, with one specific individual, the friendliest black manta we have seen. It came towards the divers back and forth trying to get a the bubbles in their bellies and giving a great spectacle to our guests. Along the day we could spot a big school of amber jacks swimming close to the pinnacle and on the top we encounter more than 10 white tips swimming along with the trumpet fishes, blue jacks and the yellow tail trigger fishes.

Great day and waiting for more tomorrow at Roca Partida.
