    This is the diving point, where you can 100 percent encounter sea lions. The big rock that sticks out from the ocean is where the colony of over 400 sea lions live.

    It is very fun that young growing sea lions, which were born last year, go zipping around underwater surprising scuba divers. For your information, the newborn babies start playing with scuba divers underwater in the middle of September.
    Their playroom is in the cave of the south side. They are so playful that they nibble divers’ fins and snorkels softly. Their big round eyes are very impressive. The babies are the most active during November to May.

Las Animas is characterized by a range of underwater terrain, including steep walls, sandy flats, and rocky outcroppings. The sandy flats offer divers the chance to encounter critters such as eels, rays, and octopuses. Adventure into the night dive where you can discover large groups of mobulas.

    El Bajo is well known to have hammerhead sharks, whale sharks and marlin. There are three seamounts and even the pinnacles of the reefs are still 59 to 72 ft of deep. Mostly we do drift dives here from one of the pinnacles to 98 ft aiming to see hammerhead sharks. Besides that, you can see marlin passing in front of you and whale sharks swimming passing you on the way to descent or ascent. “El Bajo” is captivating with so many gorgeous big fish, it is so hard to take a break until you get back on board.

    Punta Lobos is a famous point with Mobula rays. Groups of 20 are common and visible in many areas. The Mobula season starts from July.

    During September and October, all these groups get together. The number can be thousands! In this season, when you go offshore from the entry point, you can see them packed from the surface to the bottom with very little space between.
    Salvatierra Water depth is about 65 ft. and there is a 262-ft-length ferry in almost complete condition, it has become a house of reef fish because it sunk on a channel where various fish pass by. Some scuba divers humorously take their picture when they sit on the toilet of the ferry.

    Day 7: 1 to 2 dives and Seafari (Dive site La Reyna, Seafari Isla Cerralvo)

    “La Reina” used to be a famous point to see Manta rays about a few years ago. Currently some big, 16-ft-class, Manta rays come here to be cleaned on an irregular basis.
