when is the best time to see some Orcas?

I want to be able to swim with orcas. I understand they like colder waters and past through costa Rica from time to time.

Check out Norway. Tromso region gets Orcas during the middle of winter (dry-suite snokeling). I think there are liveaboards from Tromso as well as day trips from Andenes as the Orcas chase the herring migration along the Norweigan coast.

Zanzibar (Mnemba Island) very disappointing

Nungwi, Zanzibar14 Aug 2019 - 3 Sep 2021

The highlight on Mnemba Island was an octopus. Otherwise we saw moray eels, sea snakes, a ray, starfish, trumpet fish and lionfish. We were there in late August / early September.

Nusa Penida disappointing

Bali12 Aug 2019 - 4 Sep 2019

We were there in the Mola-Mola high season in August 2019. We haven't seen a single Mola Mola. We only saw sea snakes, baracudas, turtles, moray eels, lionfish and sea cucumbers. No sharks, no dolphins, no mantas. It was disappointing.

South Ari Atoll: Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa

Ari Atoll13 Aug 2021 - 28 Aug 2021 with Euro Divers Worlwide

We saw whale sharks, black tip sharks, white tip sharks, manta rays, stingrays, eagle rays, napoleons, moray eels, an octopus, turtles, many corals and hundreds of different colorful fish. At times it was like being in an aquarium.

The Vilamendhoo house reef is great, there you have the guarantee of black tip sharks. The babies swim in the front in the shallow water and the "juvenile" black tip sharks of about one meter swim around the reef. The house reef has 10 entrances and exits around the island. There are over 50 dive sites and the Euro Divers diving school is great too.

wet suit for this area in mid december?

any recommendations?

5mm or 7mm?

I prefer no wet suit but I'm accustomed to Caribbean waters, I know Pacific will be a different story!

Perfect diving experience with Reeflex

Bali1 Feb 2021 - 3 Feb 2021

Went for a couple of dives in Nusa Penida (small island south of Bali) with Reeflex Divers and ended up staying for more. The dive center is super comfy, the staff is so friendly, the gear is spotless, guides are super pro / knowledgeable and finally the diving is great !!! I have been diving for a little while and Reeflex stood out so much that I felt like letting others know ;)

I'm Adv open water and enriched air, diving 11/5 and hopefully Gordo Banks on 11/6 (if enough divers book the trip). All the dive sites I looked at require a 2 tank dive previous in order to assess your dive skills. I've booked through Manta but there are other outfits that have good reviews. It looks like November has some of the better dive conditions for visibility, temps and marine life. I've only dove there once before in March a couple of years ago. Good diving, didn't make it to Gordo Banks due to rough seas. Vis was 40ft +/- and water temps were 70's.

Giant Mantas Baja California!!

Cabo San Lucas28 Aug 2020 - 29 Aug 2020

Our giant mantas are back this year! The visibility is awesome and the water temperature amazing.

After 16 years of absence of our giant manta population, they returned 2 years ago. Now we are reporting them daily at the cleaning station on La Reina. Just another reason to dive Baja California.

I cant manage to attach any photos ! but my profile pic gives you an idea

Cabo Pulmo Marine Park Baja California

Cabo San Lucas19 Aug 2020 - 21 Aug 2020

Incredible diving with the curious bull sharks of Cabo Pulmo and the tornadoes of big eye jacks.

The most successful marine park in the world is truly a hidden gem of Baja California.
