This week we were happy to be joined by a group from Israel. After a calm crossing to Cocos, and a few brief rain showers, we had terrific underwater action all week.

Galapagos sharks continue to appear in big numbers, especially at Punta Maria, where we saw 7-8 on each dive. We dove with a 6m/20ft WHALE SHARK at Dirty Rock and 15 pilot whales were spotted 1/2 mile north of Manuelita Island.

Marble rays continue to display mating behavior at Big Dos Amigos and Submerged Rock. We had a surprise treat on our night dive to Manuelita Coral Garden -- aside from the usual whitetip feeding frenzy, a tiger shark encroached on the scene. Biggest schools of hammers were seen at Small Dos Amigos, Punta Maria, and on Manuelita's outside.
