Captain’s Noon Report – Belle Amie – 2019-05-15

Location: Anchored at Roca Oneil Socorro Island.

Weather: Sunny skies, N wind 10 knots, S ground swell 3-5′ and a NW wind chop of 3-4′. Beautiful day at Roca Oneil with a hazy 70′ visibility, 75 degree water and current headed to the north.

Yesterday the swell became more powerful and the last dive at Cabo Pearce was rather murky. After the Navy inspection we headed to Tosca for the silky snorkel. The swell was booming up the cliffs, but the middle of the bay was quite comfortable. We had two Galapagos at first and then 5 or 6 silkies. Some repeat guests did not go because they couldn’t bring lights. Our first two dives at ONeal have been beautiful, but only a couple of dolphins on the first one and a few hammerhead sightings on the second. Everyone is enjoying the varied topography and one group saw trevallies hunting with white tip reef sharks. The visibility is excellent on the east side of the reef so we are going to do one more dive here this afternoon and then try somewhere else.
