Captain’s Noon Report – Explorer – 2019-03-30

Location: Punta Tosca from Roca O’neil.
Status: En route
Weather: Winds 10-15 NW / Seas 4-6 ft NW / Temp 23C / Diving vis 70-80 ft / Medium northerly current

Great start to the day at Roca O’neil, a dive site that really tests us in this kind of weather. Large swell and current made for a challenging day. Divers saw dolphins, a manta, and Hammerheads on the first dive. As divers were getting ready for the second dive, a mother and calf Humpback were breaching not more than ten meters away from the boat! You could probably hear us cheering for miles! The calf breached more than three times. The whales then followed us to the dive site but unfortunately swam deep before our divers could see. The second dive was slightly less exciting, with a manta, returning Hammerhead, and lots of Jacks, Bonito, Wah-hoos and more! A Tiger shark was also seen hovering on the bottom. We are heading to Punta Tosca now to finish off our last two dives of the day, and also doing our Silky snorkel tonight. I am excited to see what magic Roca Partida will give us tomorrow.
