Comments [This is the third time to be on the Rocio Del Mar. The crew is fabulous and are so very accommodating. The chef is amazing and will prepare food for any kind of dietary needs. There are 4 dives daily. We saw great big stuff, mantas, Galapagos sharks, white tips, hammerheads, oceanic white tips, silkies,dolphins, large schools of Jack’s and snappers with large tunas patrolling. At Roca Partida we encountered 2 large whale sharks on all 6 dives. It was a spectacular trip. We were hoping to encounter humpbacks but none were seen and the manta encounters were not as numerous as previously but it was an incredible trip.
