Day 1:

The maximum depth for this dive site is 30 meters with currents generally mild. This site is famous for the sea lions that come and play during the dive and sharks, turtles, rays, barracudas and tropical fish are common in this area.

Day 3:
On this day, you will dive at Bartolome and Cousins which offers terraced steps that descend to 30 meters before dropping down to a Sandy bottom at 40 meters. The steps are covered with soft black coral, and are an excellent place to find the Pacific Seahorse. You can find white tipped reef sharks, green sea turtles and large moray eels near the overhangs from some of the steps. You can also encounter schools of barracuda and other reef fish. Manta rays and hammerheads can often be seen off the steps in the blue.
