There was a giant black manta dressed in Prada, jet black with white stripes flying solo. She was curious like a cat. Socorro 2012, Mexico.March 19, 2012
It was thrilling to hear whales‚ music on our first dive. And giant mantas on our second! With graceful wings he hung over me, letting my breath bubble across his belly claspers and all!
Great! Huge schools of yellowfin tuna, wahoo, and jacks. Galapagos and hammerhead sharks. Oh yeah, and the mantas wouldn’t leave us alone. Bummer…
Today at the Canyon at San Benedicto Island we saw what seemed like a herd, rather than a school, of hammerhead sharks! Great big guys, powering along the bottom just below us. What a thrill! We saw the usual cast of other characters as well: whitetips piled up like logs, cruising silvertips, and mantas hovering above, seemingly enjoying the tickle from our bubbles. Great day!!
A giant manta, dressed in Prada jet black with white stripes, flying solo, apart from the two shark suckers above her eyes. She was curious like a cat. Unrolling her cephalic lobes, dipping her wing toward my hand as if she had an itch that needed scratching.
