The day 3, we had 3 dives at El Bajo aiming for Hammerhead Sharks. This was the last diving experience at El Bajo with Valentina for this season. We could spot some of the Hammerhead Sharks in the bottom successfully. Despite of the fact that they were a little far from us, we still could them clearly because of the good visibility with 30-35 meters. Unfortunately it was yet hard to take their picture though.
The day 4, we had 3 tanks of dive at La Reina. The visibility was good and the current was slow. The Sea Lions here are older than the ones in Los Islotes. They are more likely young adults. So their behavior is totally different. We were split to two team that one went to observe young adult Sea Lions and the other went to see other creatures like Bigeye Scads and Octopus. The 4th dive of the day was at La Reinita. We don’t come here often but this is my favorite. We were welcomed by Gulf Toptail Pompano and Rainbow Chub. Besides, a school of Mexican Goatfish were seen at the sand area. I like it here with the unique terrain.
The water temperature was 25-28 deg.C. To be continued…

Hola! We’ve just returned from the last trip of the Sea of #Cortez route for this season. And this time, we had the diving at #Cabo #Pulmo included especially. The trip started with a snorkel with Whale Sharks. The regulation about this activity has gotten very strict. However, as long as we follow the rule we still can enjoy observing Whale Sharks very well. It took a while to get our turn because many boats were ahead of us in line but we successfully saw about 7 of Whale Sharks!! Hooray! After the snorkel we went to San Rafaelito for the 1st dive. It has been a while we visited this point. And this point got us reminded how beautiful the corals were. We also enjoyed the big school of Mexican Goatfish, Sea Turtle and Sea Lions. The 2nd dive was at Punta Fun Baja as a night Mobula dive. We have successfully made it with about two dozens of Mobula Rays!
The day 2, we spent entire day at Los Islotes for 4 tanks of diving. The water temperature is getting chilly. The kids Sea Lions are not intimidating at all to play with us. And their swimming skills has gotten progressed. They swam too fast for us to take their pictures! The water temperature was 26-28 deg.C. To be continued…
