Day 5, we went for snorkeling with Whale Sharks in the morning. The visibility wasn’t great but the ocean was very calm. We could observe the Whale Shark, which swam very slowly. Because of the new regulation, it takes more time to snorkel compare to before. However, the procedure gives both Whale Sharks and human beings less stress with the limited number of the people snorkeling at a time. I like it. The 1st dive of the day was at Swanee Reef. The water temperature was 26 deg.C. The visibility was 10-15 meters. It was so beautiful that the numerous of Mexican Goatfish and Indo-Pacific Sergeant were covering around the reef. It was small but we found a little school of Bigeye Scads. The 2nd dive of the day was at San Rafaelito. The water temperature was 25-26 deg.C. The visibility was 20-25 meters. The visibility was fantastic! And the Barracudas’ river was streaming in front of us. There were some Sea Lions sleeping on the surface. I witnessed that they also drooling just like us! It was a perfect conclusion of “Sea of Cortez” of the season! Thank you all for joining us and also for making this trip amazing. Hope to see you all again!

Day 4, we dove the first two dives of the day at El Bajo. The water temperature was 25-26 deg.C. The visibility was 10-15 meters. The last dive at El Bajo for this season. It was very hard to search for Hammerhead Sharks. It was very cloudy in the water. They might have moved to some other areas since we have not heard of Hammerhead around here recently. We could not see them but we saw Jacks instead! The 3rd dive was at Los Islotes. The water temperature was 25-26 deg.C. The visibility was 15-18 meters. We came to say bye to Sea Lions. There was somehow no other divers in the area where we dove. We exclusively played with Sea Lions for entire 50 minutes in the area. Hooray! To be continued…

There is a restriction in Cabo Pulmo that limits the number of the dives we can have with only two dives per day. Day 2, we had one check dive, at Los Frailes, out of the restricted area for the guests who joined from the second day. The water temperature was 27 deg.C. The visibility was 15-18 meters. We had a relaxing dive with searching Blennies, Nudibranches, Moray Eels and Lobsters.  The 2nd dive of the day was at El Cien. And the 3rd dive was at Los Morros. Day 3, we dove the first 3 dives at Los Islotes. The water temperature was 25-26 deg.C. The visibility was 12-15 meters. The Sea Lions were super friendly! I could see that they expanded their comfort zone wide open! And the daddy Sea Lions have started warning against young males not to mess with their families. I really felt the end of the season here. The 4th dive was at Punta Fun Baja for the night Mobulas. The water temperature was 25-26 deg.C. The visibility was great. Since the Mobulas went around over and over, we almost got tired of them! My personal favorite was the little squid about 5 mm I found. To be continued…
