Captains Noon Report – Explorer – 2019-01-03

Location: San Benedicto, Lava flow /.22′ bay shore /.34′ “El Canyon”
Weather: Partly cloudy 6/10 Wind: Gusty, 8-12NE Seas: Chop and Secondary swell at anchorage 1-3′

Diving : Dive 1 was a wonderful first exposure to how good the Revillagigedo’s can be. The current was running mild to moderate from W against the NE seas, and wind, but beneath the chop the divers encountered “everything!” as described by first group back. In slightly cooler water than normal 23-24C or reported 74F but with good visibility 30+M (90 plus feet) reported our divers encountered several mantas, as well as hammer head sharks, galapagos, silkies, and a tiger shark. Several inquisitive dolphins also joined several of the divers, making the dive a grand slam. Dive 2 continued to impress all , the current switched and started to run from the NE/E , mild to moderate by the end of dive. The visibility was reported at good again, 90 plus feet, and each group was again involved with manta interaction, hammerheads, and a up close 6-12′ away, encounter with a curious Tiger shark reported to be 10-12′ long. So far a really good morning for our guests.
