Scuba diving in Gordon rocks with sharks!

I don’t have much time to write, so I will mostly put up the pictures!

I dived at Gordon rocks, it is the remains of a crater measuring about 100 metres in diameter. Its supposed to be one of the best places to dive in the galapagos,  and it was an amazing dive… because of the sharks!! It’s the first time I ever see one. But I guess I just have to deal with the fact that it’s never going to be as beautiful as the first boat dive I did in cozumel!

It had been raining the whole morning so the visibility wasn’t that good, a pity, but still you could se around 10 metres around you. Sometimes only the shadows of the sharks, hehe.
It’s breathtaking to be so close to sharks, they swam just a couple of metres underneath me! Haha.

The swedish girl  I went with got really sea sick and didn’t dive, I feel so sorry for her!!

Oh by the way, the instructor said I was a good diver.. :) I asked why (since I’m new) and he answered because I consume very little air.. haha. Yeah I was the last one in coming up to the surface together with the instructor, all the other ones in the group ascended before me with the assistants because they ran out of air, and I still had 1000 psi left when we got up to the surface.. Cool :)

By the way I really enjoyed this gang of divers, it’s a family owned buisness, so the main instructor and the assistants were all siblings :)

Have to go now… but enjoy the pics!!
