Roca Partida: This must be heaven on earth or better heaven in the middle of the ocean. I was just flabbergasted when I dropped down here this morning for the first time. I was pretty tired after waking up loads of times while we went out here during the night and literally had my girlfriend drag me out of bed in the morning, but as soon as I saw what was going on here, I was totally awake. Good visibility, tons of jacks, hunting tuna, white-tips piled up on the balconies in the rock, hammerheads further out and Galapagos sharks, dusky sharks and what not all over the place. Just one word: amazing. This is exactly what I was hoping for when I booked this trip. Everybody was smiling when they came out, shouting and laughing. Some of the guys had a very close encounter with a group of dolphins, the pictures made my heart jump, so I was determined to get see them too. On the next dive, we were lucky enough to come across a mum and her baby and that truly made my girlfriend’s day. She’s actually looking at the picture of the two playing with each other right now. Glad we got another day here, love it to bits. Off to dinner now, I’ll put on so much weight, because the food is amazing too. I guess I will apply for a job in the kitchen.

We all suffer from the dolphin-syndrome: Can’t get these smiles off our faces. What an extraordinary day!!!! Impatient to get more of it.
