Captain’s Noon Report – Explorer – 2020-08-26

Location: Bahia de los Angeles
Weather: Wind E 12-16 knots, Swell 3 feet

Last night, just around the last dive of the day, we had a big pod of bottlenose dolphins hunting nearby. Four of our guests went out in the inflatable and they had an incredible snorkel with 40-50 dolphins! This morning we arrived around 0730 and anchored outside the bay. We did a little kayaking and stand up paddleboarding in the early hours and the pangas were ready to go out snorkeling with the whale sharks at 0900. They were out for three hours and had lots of good whale shark action. They said there were ten around with them the entire time! It was a really good morning. After the whale sharks, we headed out around the corner to the south to dive at a place called Pescadero. En route, we came across a huge pod of common dolphins hunting. We stopped and spent around half an hour with them. Six guests went out in the inflatable and got a little bit of playtime with them, although they were pretty shy. The first dive is done so far this afternoon, and half the guests are away for a second dive now. It’s a nice shallow reef with lots of fishes. The plan for tonight is to go back to San Pedro Martir, do three dives there tomorrow, then head for the north end of Coronado Island off Loreto.
