100 schooling silvertip sharks at the Canyon, San Benedicto Island

March 16, 2007 Written by

Location: The Canyon and The Boiler, San Benedicto Island (Socorro)

Comments: Captain Dave reports that Dive Day 1 of the trip was fantastic.  They started the day out at The Canyon dive site at San Benedicto Island (Socorro) and on the first dive, 2 guests took some fantastic images of an adult female humpback whale and her calf.  Divers also saw 5 silvertip sharks at the main cleaning station.  One closed circuit rebreather diver had the fantastic good fortune of sighting something that none of us had ever seen before  – a verified school of aproximately 100 juvenile silvertip sharks.  Incredible!!  The seas were fairly flat and Dave elected to spend the afternoon at The Boiler dive site on the west side of San Benedicto Island where the divers were rewarded with a friendly and interactive manta that we have seen a number of times before.

Weather: Clear skies, calm at The Canyon, 4 to 5 foot seas in open ocean at The Boiler, air temperature 78°F, winds from the north at 10 knots.

Water: Water temperature 73°F, visibility 100 feet
