Jan 8, 2017

Today we are at Roca Partida on our first day of diving with great conditions; mild swell, visibility of 30 mts / 90 ft, water temperature 25 C / 79 F, current coming from the west.

On the first dive we spotted lots of mantas coming from the blue and joining our dive feeling the bubbles and chasing the divers to get as close as possible, even it looks like they are more interested in us day after day. In total we could see over 10 different mantas along the day with one chevron that kept swirling and looping among the divers, one big black manta that we spotted in past january in San Benedicto made it appearance here at Roca. All the divers got their best chances to get the shots between the ocasionaly silver tips, hammerheads and the constant white tip reef sharks. On the last dive we spotted a big school of bonitas mixed with some silvertips and silkys, no mantas but I believe the divers are very satisfied with the day.
