This week we started sailing at around 2 pm from Puntarenas to Cocos Island and we had the best crossing you can get. It is the beginning of the summer time and the ocean is always nice and flat. Our first days of diving started in Chatham bay with lots of fish and white tip sharks everywhere. The next two dives were in Manuelita, one of the best sites to see hammerhead sharks, we were just swimming along the wall and at the third cleaning station we saw at least 40 hammerheads.
Next days we tried to find the best sites for our people and there were some spots like Punta Maria with the Galapagos sharks, that were a total success.They have a cleaning station there and they just kept going around getting clean by the barber fish.
Dirty rock w was the best dive site to see the big groups of hammerheads sharks and the best part of the dive its when you get in the blue water fo finish the dive ,and you can swim through them like a fish cloud.
Dos Amigos Small with 15 Galapago sharks and hammerheads crossing by the blue trevallys cloud , is just amazing.
There were places with countless fish like the arch in submerged rock with the blue and gold snappers and also we got to see 3 spotted eagle rays just before to go through the arch.The weather was very good with the same amount of sun and rain ,waterfalls falling in the ocean, beautiful rainbows ,sunsets with amazing colours and the best thing , our gest that made a very pleasant trip for us.
The trip ended up with very happy guests that we hope they come back soon.
Thanks to all them; Luisa,Manuel,Arturo,Federico,Alejandro,Antonio,Isabelle,Jerone,Marcel,Stefan,Olga,Lana,Dusan,Robyn and Kara.
