Captain’s Noon Report – Under Sea – 2020-03-03

Location: Cabo Pearce
Weather: Visibility 80 ft, Water Temperature 73F/23C, Wind 15-20 knots from the NNW but nice in the anchorage, Clear skies
Status: Anchored at Cabo Pearce

Yesterday we spent the entire day at the Boiler. The afternoon dives were even better than the morning, with 3-5 playful mantas on both dives and a few hammerheads around too. The last dive of the day had feeding white-tips, 10-12 Galapagos sharks, a tiger shark sighting plus the mantas. We departed the Boiler right after dive 4 yesterday to head for Cabo Pearce. Two dives are done so far today and they were both excellent dives. There are lots of playful mantas around, I heard in the range of half a dozen! Almost everyone saw a big school of hammerheads on dive 2, approximately 60-100, going by the deeper cleaning station. There are some dolphins around but they are not super playful today. We are planning one more dive here then heading to the Navy base for check-in and the silky snorkel this evening on the west side. We plan to dive Punta Tosca area tomorrow then spend the last day at Roca once the swell has come down.
