Swimming with silky sharks!
With a full boat and calm seas we set out for San Jaime to see what we could attract. We chummed with fresh skipjack tuna and after just an hour we were joined by three curious silkies. They swam with us peacefully for two hours, allowing us to free dive with them and get some great photos and videos. There were two other silkies that were behaving a bit more shy, coming in momentarily and then slipping into the blue for several minutes before coming back for a quick pass before turning out again. Satisfied with a great encountered we packed up and headed back towards Cabo, and en route encountered a pair of mating Olive Ridley Turtles . The caption put the boat in idle a respectable distance away and we slide into the water and approached them carefully. It was such an incredible privilege to witness this amazing behavior in the middle of the blue.
A great day on safari!
