Greetings to all ocean enthusiasts!
The DeepSee has returned to the island after an almost two-month break, and we have to say – it’s good to back!
The submarine has accumulated 6 more dives this expedition, and on every dive Poseidon was more the kind to us by supplying fantastic activity underwater, keeping us coming back for more and more!
The wall was full with surprises: silky sharks, yellowfin tunas and mobula rays escorted us on the way down for most of the dives. One mobula gave us a show very close to the cabin’s dome, and left us with jaws wide open.
We saw 3 Prickly sharks between 800-925ft/240-280m on three of our dives to the Wall, where we also found a habitat of around 10 individuals of jellonose fishes at 800ft/240m.
On the platform on top of the wall, at 500-630ft/150-190m, the big rock formations were teeming with life: frogfishes, brotulas swimming around (not so common), moray eels, big groupers and crabs were there to send us off back to the surface with big smiles on our faces.
Water temperature at 980ft/300m seemed to drop comparing to last trips, so we hope that that will maintain the great activity for the next trip and maybe even provide us with surprising sighting and some more weird critters of the abyss.
Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity and contact our office or your agent to make sure you’ll have a seat in the DeepSee submersible on your next trip to Coco’s island.
So long, thanks for all the fish. Hope to see ya’ all on board soon!
