Schooling silkies, a small school of hammerheads, 3 giant mantas, huge schools of bonitos and jacks and even a juvenile whaleshark!May 30, 2017
Had a successful night dive and silky snorkel last night at Punta Tosca with loads of silkies around, before getting underway for the overnight transit to Roca Partida. Have completed two dives here at Roca so far and it is just incredible. Schooling silkies, a small school of hammerheads, 3 giant mantas, huge schools of bonitos and jacks and even a juvenile whaleshark who came to visit us at at the Belle Amie, circling the boat several times and affording a handful of guests the chance to snorkel with it. Diving conditions are great with a mild current, 80-100ft viz, and water temps ranging from 24C down to around 21 in the thermoclines. Wind and swell up a bit more than forecast but not giving us any problems. 10-15kts from the north with a NW swell 5-7′. Planning tomorrow here and possibly a third day as well, then off the Boiler and up to Los Islotes.
