On Tuesday, Isla Mujeres lived up to its fickle relationships with the sharks this year. The wind was blowing (for the first time in 4 weeks) and it seemed that the huge number of sharks that we saw yesterday had dived deep. Despite this, there were still photo opportunities, albeit they were not as frequent as before!
Thursday proved to be very productive. There were lots of sharks, although there was so much food in the water that they were quite spread out. Nevertheless, they nearly ran us all over several times during the day!
OK, so we've had some good days here in Isla Mujeres, but today REALLY delivered.
We got in early into a really dense formation of feeding sharks, and very soon found large numbers of mantas (including the largest one that I have ever seen). The action was so frantic that you would get run into by the sharks while you were watching/photographing the mantas. In a word-awesome!
