Captain’s Noon Report – Explorer – 2018-09-28

Monkey Face Guadalupe Island Clear Light Blue Hazy Skies with small patch white clouds on the horizon Winds Light Swell NE 1 – 2 foot Air Temp 75 F Water Temp 68 -70f Vis – 100 plus feet Deep breath in, the ocean air fills the lungs and the fragrance of salt water wafts gently. The sun is warm and inviting. The salty air covers our skin and the pressing sun dries it quickly. We are on the water again and refreshed, brought back to life. There is always a constantly perched gull that graces the anchor pole on the bow over seeing the water. The rocky brown cliffs are shear and rustic. The layer of the rock are a history lesson of the island. The gull stands on one leg and begins to preen it’s feathers. The disregarded feathers drift away in the slight breeze and fall onto the surface of the water. The feathers continue on drifting like small rafts. It is almost perfect today. Our guests our treated to one of nature’s true divine splendors. There is always a hint of mystery that captures this island with it’s ethereal clouds rising at the peak of the mountain line then cascade down the peak. The guests are ready for their trip of a life time and the shark have come to them. The first shark was seen at 7am. Curious but cautious the shark passed by the hanging baits slowly in the dim morning light. Several sharks have accompanied the first and the morning seacape has been filled with 5 sharks at one time in the frame. Joker and Slashfin have come by and there are at least three sharks that have been with us the entire morning. guests are in awe. Never could they imagine coming face to face with such a creature. Several sharks have made very close passes to the surface and submersible cages. The sharks have kept coming in at a steady pace. the delight to see each perso rise out from the cages in amazement, they are like children again with giddy joy and happiness. The day is coming close to being perfect.
