A massive humpback whale and baby made an appearance on one of our dives at Alcyone!! Among other marine life, we saw a blue marlin, schools of hammerheads and a beautiful silvertip. Our divemaster Stefan reported, “Our second dive we went to Alycone and I had the best diving moment of my life with mother and calf humpback whale that came to us at the cleaning station and then again back at the safety stop!!! AMAZING!!”

Now for the rest of the trip highlights:
We saw a majestic blue marlin speed around us at the safety stop at Big Dos Amigos, and some nice hammerhead activity in Manuelita Channel with jacks, Galapagos sharks and eagle rays to boot. Dirty Rock had lots of hammerheads in store for us as well as the big schools of jacks, and we found a mantis shrimp at Pajara on one of our afternoon dives. On our 4th day at the island we had a magical 30 minutes with a manta ray in Manuelita Channel. The largest schools of hammerheads we saw this week were mostly out in the blue, and mostly at Dirty Rock!
