Another successful trip to Guadalupe Island is wrapping up. Even though we encountered a bit of a south swell which affected the visibility, the sharks came out to play. On our first day, we had 14 different sharks swim by the cages. Along with the sharks, a green sea turtle and a small pod of dolphins, including a couple of tiny babies, also stopped by for a visit.

After our first dinner at Guadalupe Island, our divers were treated to a presentation by Dr. Mauricio Hoyos, the resident shark researcher. Mauricio's sense of humor and great material made his presentation a hit with our divers.

Mauricio also brought Ocean Ramsey along for his visit. Regular readers of this blog will know, that I'm often critical of what Ocean does and her visit gave us a chance to have a long talk and understand each others points of view. I was quite impressed with her passion for the sharks and the projects she supports and she even picked up a deck brush and helped scrub the boat.

On the way back to San Diego, the ocean was flat calm, a fact that was greatly appreciated by our divers. Overall it was a great trip, despite the less than stellar visibility.

In a few hours we are boarding our next expedition. I can't wait to see what will wait for us at Guadalupe. After 14 years of diving there, I still feel like a kid in a candy store, each time we depart to see "my" white sharks.
