Thanks Craig - a truly fabulous report on what was no doubt an excellent adventure - I think your terminology for Malpelo as Wild, is about as apt a description as one can put it.

Thanks Craig. Reading Sten's blog added even more excitement than you and Dan have already shared. I got real shivers up my back.

I like to put a summary of my trip itinerary, including the dive log data in a table for quick lookup and as a reference for future trip there, as shown in the Table 1, below. I hope that would be helpful for others who are planning to go diving there.
