Captain’s Noon Report – Under Sea – 2018-11-10

Location: Lat 29 08.16N Long 118 17.08W
Weather: Calm wind and seas. Beautiful sunny day. Water temp 70 – 71F, Air Temp 75F, Vis. 100+ ft
Status: At Anchor in Guadalupe in 240 ft depth

What a beautiful day we have here at Guadalupe, no wind, seas like a mirror with amazing visibility underwater. A lot of yellow fin tuna and bait fish. This morning around 7am we saw the first shark, Jette who got her name last trip, in the ID Book as number 253. She has the lower part of her caudal fin mangled. She attacked the bait and stayed around like 5 minutes, but then disappeared. No shark action at surface after that. They have seen around 4 different sharks but down deep and far from the submersible cages. Water temp must be the factor of why sharks don’t want to come to surface. But Guests are having a good time they all have seen at least one shark. Hopefully this afternoon gets better. Stay tuned for more updates tomorrow.
