Our guests arrived in two groups 13 people first around 4pm, and afterwards the, other guests arrived to the vessel, where we welcomed them with a fruit cocktail.
Immediately we started sailing with a spectacular sunset a very calm sea and a perfect sailing all night, the sunrise was a great surprise since in front we had the majestic Isla del Caño, sunny day with a fresh breeze and all ready for our first dive The group was super, happy, so we had a great athmosphere onboard.
During the dive there was very good visibility and lots of fish of many species, lobsters, white tip sharks and we observed two very friendly turtles in front of us, that stayed for a long time.
After lunch, we all are ready for more excitement and time to dive the best sites; Faro, Coquito and famous Bajo del Diablo where we had a, pleasant surprise and we could see the topography of volcanic rock background. It was a magical place submerged in the crystalline waters of the Pacific: great pinnacles, valleys of sand canals and cracks everywhere, it looked like another planet adorned with The lush marine life shoals of large-sized fishes, barracuda, snappers and hundreds of reef fish, not to mention whitetip sharks on some occasions simply resting on the sandy bottom and other times more active looking for food... but that was not all the group of divers were very lucky we found a beautiful couple of clown shrimps of many colors, unforgettable!!
The last day, we decided to go to, the Bajo del Diablo and what, a surprise!! Two gigantic ocean MANTA RAY… were waiting for us.
It was just, spectacular! About 20 minutes around us and we could barely contain the desire to touch them as they were so close to us and so friendly, but of course, nobody did.
We cannot forget the hike in Corcovado National Park where the flora and fauna are spectacular. We also saw different types of monkeys, reptiles and a Manta was seen in just 2 hours of a pleasant walk...
Very grateful to have had people so kind and happy in our boat.
We are looking forward having you on board again.
