Amazing sightings!

I loved to see all these animals underwater: hammerheads, whale sharks, iguanas, dolphins, mantas, mobulas, sting rays, eagle rays, dolphins, redlipped batfish, silkies, Galapagos sharks, turtles,... So many! And the landtour was great too :) The crew was very friendly as well. For big marine animals it is THE place. I like how the national park protects the environment.

I’ve done drift dives before but this was amazing. To see the hammerhead cleaning station was so neat. And the sea lions playing.
