As promised some months ago, a proper photo update on our diving at Isla Malpelo. Not much text, but enjoy the pics! I know we look back with good memories on our dives there!!!

All the credits for these pics go to Kadu Pinheiro, our Brasilian professional photographer who was there on the dive trip. These reason for our late publishing is simply that he has to make his bread-and-butter with these pics.

Adios,

C&A.
