Apr19th, 2023

It was a little windy on the way out and the waves were high. Although it shook in the morning, in the afternoon

The wind has subsided a little, so I feel relieved.

Apr20th, 2023 Isla San Benedicto ( El Cañón )

The first day of diving started with 3 dives. Three other ships were converging at the same point.

Clarity averages 10 mts, water temperature 24ºC. The influence of volcanic ash has come out a little, and the transparency is

While not the best, the fish are super energetic. Shark Parade (Hammer,

white tip, silver tip, silky, galapagos)

A typical Socorro day with manta rays wandering around.

Day 4 (Apr21st, 2023) Isla Socorro ( Cabo Pierce )

The second day is a lucky day with 4 dives♪

Clarity 15 mts, water temperature 24ºC. A day filled with manta rays.

In the second half, the current gradually became stronger, and on the 4th run, it felt like I had my hands full trying to avoid the current.

Day 5 (April 22nd, 2023)

Continuing from yesterday, Cabo Pierce. Clarity was better than yesterday, averaging around 20mts, water temperature 24ºC.

Of the three, the two in the morning were particularly good. to dolphins, manta rays and hammers

In addition, there is also a school of tuna that is worth seeing. Navy inspection after finishing three.

Day 6 (Apr23rd, 2023) Roca Partida

The conditions are perfect, especially the first two runs have a transparency of 20mts, a water temperature of 24ºC, and a good flow.

There was almost nothing, and when I was happy that I could easily dive, a whale shark appeared.

To be honest, Roca Partida is still a bit off, and there aren’t many big players.

Just when I was expecting it, this big guy suddenly appeared, and everyone suddenly got excited!


Day7 (Apr24th, 2023) Isla San Benedicto ( El Boiler )

Oh my God! Another Jinbei here in the boiler! ! !

Roca and Boiler and Jinbei for two days in a row are too lucky. such as hammers and manta rays

The usual big things look like small things lol

Day8 (Apr25th, 2023) San Benedicto ( El Cañón )

Although the wind became stronger and the transparency fell as forecast, it was within expectations.

The flow was strong in the first run and it was a tough fight. The 2nd and 3rd shots have calmed down a bit, and the hammer’s

End the last day while enjoying a large herd.

Day9 (Apr26th, 2023)

On the way back, we were hit by strong winds. The ship shook quite a bit, so some customers got drunk.

The wind did not weaken on the way, and the return trip was swaying from beginning to end,

Especially for the last 100 miles

It’s hard to know that this kind of thing can happen to a natural opponent.

Day10 (Apr27th, 2023)

In the midst of the rough weather, I finally returned to the port safely on the long route.

After breakfast, the trip was completed with an airport transfer. good job for today!
