It’s so great to be us… ;) But seriously, it’s these kind of trips that make us love our jobs!
This week the DeepSee added 8 more dives to its dive log, with guests aboard both Argo and SeaHunter. Another amazing thing is that on this trip the DeepSee reached 2,700 total dives –a very rare & impressive number in the submarine industry (and we are very proud!).
The main habitat we explored was the wall outside of the island, and right on the ledge at 220m (730ft), was a mobula ray party. We kept the submarine hovering in front of the ledge and just sat back to enjoy the show. A couple of these rays came and went to and from the DeepSee, passing right above the cabin, and we felt like we could just reach out and touch them. We could have just stayed at that one spot for the whole dive, it was so exciting!!! Check out the video to see for yourself.
At some point we decided to move on, to see what else Cocos Island had in store. Down on the wall we found several jellonose fish habitats with 10-15 individuals in one spot. Most of them were juveniles, we believe they were recently born.
Back at the rock formation (150-180m / 500-600ft), there was a lot of activity. The mobula rays followed us there, and individual hammerheads simultaneously dove down to get a glimpse of the DeepSee. On the rocks we saw more frogfish than usual (on one dive we saw about 8 of them spread out on the rocks).
