Captain’s Noon Report – Gallant Lady – 2021-04-14

Location; San Benedicto

Today we are anchored on the north side of the lava flow at San Benedicto. The wind is from the NW varying from 5-10kts with a light chop from the north and a low, long swell from the SSE. The vessel is sitting comfortably in 40′ of water with 2 shots of chain out. After a rocky start weather-wise getting underway from Cabo we had a very smooth overnight cruise last night and arrived at San Benedicto just before 0800. We had bottlenose dolphins jumping out of the water off our bow as we approached the island. We did our first two dives at the Canyon and both dives were excellent. Lots of sharks around the cleaning station: hammerheads, silver-tips, Galapagos, duskies, white-tips. Dolphins came in for a close-up visit at the end of the dive. A black manta cruised by right over the top of the divers on the 2nd dive. For the afternoon dives, we will probably try Las Cuevitas and manta highway. All guests are very happy with the diving and the boat.
