Captains Noon Report – Belle Amie – 2018-04-28

Location: The Boiler
Status: Viz 100′
Weather: 73 F

Idling behind the rock inside the Boiler. Sunny Skies 10-15 knots of NW wind but it is getting lighter. The southerly ground swell we had yesterday has either diminished or it is not making it around the island to our location. WNW swell 3-5′ rolling into the bay with occasional whitewash on the Boiler. We finished the day yesterday with a dive at Cabo Pearce, the Navy check in, and then wrapped a cable around a rock in the Aquarium. No sharks at first, so we delayed the snorkel a bit, and 3 or 4 showed up. After the snorkel we recovered the cable and departed for the Boiler. The first dive at the boiler was great with Mantas and Dolphins. I heard “that was the best dive of my life.” A few false killer whales came by during the second dive. Two divers who were already in the skiff were able to jump in with them on the surface and one group also saw them underwater. A few Mantas and tiger sharks, all around excellent. Viz 100’+ water temp 73 and moderate to strong NE current.
All happy and ready for more.
– Capt. Graham
