Keep a close eye on Galapagos sharks, silvertips, and tuna.

Jan 25th, 2023 Isla Socorro ( Punta tosca )
I started diving at Punta Tosca, except for one manta and a dolphin.
The ocean situation is not good enough, so I rounded up here with two. Clarity 10 mts, water temperature 23ºC.
After finishing the navy inspection, the third one moved to CABO PIERCE.
This is a fun one as the manta rays come close to the divers.

Continuing from yesterday, CABO PIERCE today.
A very satisfying day with 4 manta rays !!
Jan 27th, 2023 Isla San Benedicto ( El Cañón )
The two runs in the morning were hit by strong currents, and the transparency was around 5 mts.
It’s pretty bad and disappointing. Conditions improved rapidly in the afternoon.

Enjoy 3 dives that are unique to Socorro where big fish appear one after another.
On the final day, I was finally able to show Socorro’s ability.
