Inspired by nearby competition, this male humpback put some serious power into this series of forward lunges. In 7 years of whale watching, I had never seen a lunge like this from this angle. Taken with a canon 350d and 70-300 lens.

This friendly black manta played behind the boat for hours. It allowed everyone to jump in and have a play. He stayed on the surface the entire time.

This school of silky sharks stuck around roca partida for at least three weeks. They came from the blue again and again. The school seemed to be largest in the mornings.

These are false killer whales that frequent isla san benedicto. They can be very friendly and curious of divers. This day we ran into a huge aggregation of more than 200 individuals. Most were too busy to pay us any attention, but these two did.

This striped marlin and dolphin tag-teamed the bait until it was no more. They didn't attack it like you would expect. They moved slow and deliberate, as if the bait knew they didn't have a chance.

This diver and I watched numerous sailfish and even striped marlin feed on this tiny baitball. In our experience, there is more action on the smaller baitballs.
