Captain’s Noon Report – Belle Amie – 2020-02-27

Location: Socorro Island
Weather: Winds light ENE swell, Calm in the bay, Visibility 80 ft, Water Temperature 75 F
Status: Cabo Pearce

Great day to start a charter at the Canyon. We saw more mantas and hammerheads with a large school of assorted size yellowfin tuna. Taco night was a lot of fun as usual. We headed over to Cabo Pearce last night with calm seas to greet us and today it’s the same conditions. Up to 20 dolphins came to hang out with our divers on the first dive. Guests screamed with joy after the dive because they were so happy with the friendly dolphin encounter. On top of that, we had a school of hammerheads and two different mantas interacting with the guests. The second dive brought three mantas that kept doing laps around the divers all the way up to the safety stop. 60 minutes of massive manta action along with another school of hammerheads that everyone was able to see. It has been a special start to this charter. We have seen whales very close by. As we dropped into the first dive today a mother, calf and escort male were just on the north side of the finger. Unfortunately, the divers weren’t able to see them underwater but when the divers surfaced we were able to see them slapping their pecs on the water. The black and white long pectoral fins were easy to spot from the mothership. We have one more dive then we’re headed to the Navy Base then Punta Tosca for our silky snorkel.
