Comments Boarding moved from Cabo San Luca to La Paz due to some trouble with Mexican authorities, adding 3 hours driving North and 6 hours sailing to the trip. Liveabord was excellent with very competent captain (and owner), great cabins, food and facilities.
At San Benedicto, shark life was very limited, probably due to illegal fishing boats anchored at the island, but spotted few Mantas and Hammerhead Sharks. Socorro twilight diving was great with encounter of pod of Dolphins. Roca Partida was the highlight of the trip with several dives with several giant Mantas (5 at the same time in one dive), Silvertip Sharks, Silkies, Galapagos Sharks. Excellent trip.
