The day 6, the last day of the scuba diving for this trip wasn’t have a great luck in terms of the ocean condition. But we still enjoyed to dive at El Canyon. The water temperature was 24-25 deg.C.  The visibility was 15-18 meters.  The school of Hammerhead Sharks, a very friendly Manta Ray and a school of Yellowfin Tunas found us to say hello.  Besides, a special event of the day was an encounter with a school of False Killer Whales!!! They seemed a family with some babies as well. We successfully snorkeled with them! That was a big big surprise given from dear mother nature! Thank you all for joining us and also for being patient with a not so great ocean condition! Your positiveness made our trip very enjoyable! Hope to see you all again!

The day 5, it was such a challenging day for us to scuba dive with a strong current and a weird visibility condition in the water. We switched the dive site El Canyon to El Boiler and came back to El Canyon seeking a better condition.  At El Canyon with our 1st and the 3rd dive of the day, we could find a couple of super huge Galapagos Sharks, which we almost thought it was a Tiger Sharks. The 2nd dive of the day was at El Boiler, we found 3 of Manta Rays that stayed with us a while. Then, Hammerhead Sharks appeared in the blue water as well. The water temperature was 24-25 deg.C. To be continued…

The day 3, we continued to our adventure at Roca Partida. It is not so easy to encounter with Whale even though they are seen closer from the boat. Yet, it seemed very stable to see all the dynamic activities in the water, such as super big Yellowfin Tunas passing through a big school of other fish. Hammerhead Sharks happened to appear right front of us. Hooray!

The day 4, we were at Cabo Pierce. The ocean was very quiet oddly.  We could somehow see a Manta Ray, a few of Hammerhead Sharks, Silky Sharks and Galapagos Sharks. Otherwise, it was just BLUE, BLUE and BLUE water. We sometimes heard of Dolphins but not seen in the water. This is what our mother nature can be.  The water temperature was 23-25 deg.C.
