2011 Cocos Andy Sallmon Hammerhead on Flickr.
“Well, the weather topside is still less than ideal, with pouring rain and strong winds, but the seas have been calm on the south and east sides of Isla del Coco, allowing us to dive some of the classic Cocos sites - Alcyone, Submerged Rock, and Lobster Rock. We have been treated to plenty of hammerhead action, though not as many busy cleaning stations as at Manuelita - strange! We’ve also had plenty of other neat stuff to see and shoot - including a showy, displaying octopus perfectly posed on top of a rock, and pretty red-lipped batfish. I have saved the best for last, however - on one of my safety stops, I got buzzed by a marlin!” - Andy Sallmon
