[None]This trip to Malepelo Island and then to the CoCos Islands was the
best dive trip that we have ever been on. The Seahunter and her crew is the
best we have encountered anytime, any place, anywhere, ever. The food and
accomodations were top notch. 

The diving was unbelievable. We saw sharks on every dive - seeing sharks
was the reason we were on this trip and we saw more sharks on any  one dive
then my buddy and I have seen in total in our combined dive careers. We saw
Hammerheads, schools and schools of hammerheads. We saw more White tips
than I thought existed. We saw a few Black tips, Galapagos and Silky
sharks. We saw rays - a few Mantas in the distance, squadrons of Spotted
Eagle Rays, Marble Rays singles and groups of up to 8 together.There were
morays everywhere, in holes and free swimming. We saw one Red Lipped Cocos
Bat Fish. There were  King Angelfish. Moorish Idols, Puffers and Box Fish,
Frog Fish, Blue and Gold Snappers, TrumpetFish, Yellowtail Tuna, and half
the boat saw a Whale Shark.

Diving was done from skiffs, led by a divemaster. Typically, the profile
was to drop down to know cleaning stations, wait for the hammerheads to
come in and to enjoy them. After they left, or if they weren't there, we
would move off, either alond the wall or out into the blue. The skiff
drivers were always there to pick us up as we surfaced.

I must repeat that this was the best trip ever, one that is a definately
needs to be repeated.
