“What a fantastic trip! The water is the perfect temperature -- it’s a super La Niña. There were so many Galapagos sharks at Dos Amigos Pequeno, and the best place for hammerheads this week was Dirty Rock.” -- Shmulik Blum, CEO DeepSee submarine


Now for the trip highlights:
All week we enjoyed immaculate weather and incredibly clear visibility at Cocos Island! The star dive site for the second expedition in a row was... Small Dos Amigos! It was just on fire. We saw dozens of Galapagos coming in from all sides, as well as hammerheads and a giant Pacific manta ray.

At Dirty Rock we encountered schools of hammerheads out in the blue, and huge quantities of fish in front of the first cleaning station. There were also two well-camouflaged frogfish just a few centimeters apart. We saw silky sharks near the surface at Alcyone, and hammerheads throughout Manuelita Coral Garden.

Each day we went down with the DeepSee (check out our Pilot’s report for more details!), and toward the end of the trip we disembarked at Chatham Bay and hiked to the Cerro Aguacate lookout point.
