I recall having to pinch myself to ensure I was not dreaming

February 6, 2013 Written by


Whales like I’ve never seen before captured on film by several of our divers this past trip! Some of the pictures and video of a mother and very new calf was breath taking for those of us stuck above water. I happened to have a sneak preview of several of these treasures before any kind of editing, or (photo shop:) and can attest that no alterations were needed. Also some awesome video of a very friendly manta at Socorro Island that was as interested in interacting with a couple divers as they were with the manta. The weather was simply amazing, and on the return trip to Cabo, during my night watch, I have the pleasure of standing the midnight to six am bridge watch, I recall having to pinch myself to ensure I was not dreaming, the seas were so calm. It is very rare for the Pacific I know to have no swell, and a placid waxy surface that in the early hours of the day only reflects the faint moonlight and stars and is completely untouched by a breath of wind. Makes my job all the easier with no  leeway to compensate for, and a smooth ride for the crew and guests sleeping in their quarters.
