Captain Dave is Taking Over

Comments: Well, this is my sign-off as Captain. Captain Dave is taking over and I’m headed back to Canada to spend a couple of weeks with my kids. Our transit from Guadalupe Island back to Ensenada was uneventful with mild 6ft seas yesterday evening, mellowing out overnight to just a low swell for the morning. This was truly a lovely trip with a group of exceptionally warm and nice people onboard. The great white sharks weren’t bad either!!

Confirmed shark identifications for Day 1 were: “Daryl,” “Erik,” “Shredder” (as always!!) and “Stimpy.” Sightings for Day 2 were: “Shredder,” “Squire,” “Chica,” and “Erin.” Mauricio the shark scientist was busy on Day 3 tracking and following a juvenile with a tag by panga and we had trouble confirming our id’s. We saw 1 big female, 2 males (12 – 14 feet), 1 10ft male and 1 super cute juvenile at 7 feet. Behaviour and sightings on Day 3 were especially outstanding. Cheers and safe diving!
