Captain’s Noon Report- Explorer – 2019-01-04

Location:Socorro Isl. Cabo Pearce. anchor .1′ from shore in 104′ Weather:
Weather:The water temp reported at 24C, again cooler than the past month, but good visibility 30M+ and a mild current from north.

Partly cloudy 4/10. Wind: sheltered by point but 5-8N gusts 10-12 outside point. Seas: 1-3′ swell at anchor, 2-3′ outside scattered white caps on swell. Diving : Dive 1 today after naval inspection first thing. It was excellent! Our divers report schooling hammerheads 30-40 in number in clear view, and inquisitive dolphin AND manta interactions. Our snorkelers had a chance to investigate the reef nearby as well as the wall area, with numerous colorful fish species. Prior to the dive we weighed anchor and headed for a naval inspection first thing in the morning. It went very smooth, and allowed us plenty of time to get set up at Cabo Pearce, with no other vessels in the area. Yesterday afternoon dives 3 and 4 continued to produce excellent Manta interactions as well as numerous shark species, and at Dinner all the guests were very happy with the first day. Many remarked that some of the dives were the best they had ever had, especially as we had called the first one a “check dive.”
