Fantastic diving.  Definitely adventure diving, NOT pleasure diving.  In
some areas, the current was so strong you had to pull yourself hand over
hand over the rocks.  Glad I had a dry suit for most of the diving this
time of year.  I recommend it as I also dived with a 9mm and was extremely
cold.  There are sharks everywhere, mostly hammerheads by the hundreds and
galapagos sharks.  Also saw a fair number of white tipped reef sharks and
mantas.  One member of our group, not me, unfortunately, did see one (1)
whale shark and got the photo to prove it.  The weather is October is cool
there so be sure to bring a light jacket.  The boat was a real pleasure as
was the crew.
