Captain’s Noon Report – Under Sea – 2021-04-27

Location: Roca Partida

After a wonderful final dive yesterday, at Roca Partida, we departed after dinner for Cabo Pearce, Isla Socorro. Very mild comfortable crossing, and arrived early morning here in Cabo Pearce. Overcast and breezy conditions with wind around 10-12kts and flat calm surface in the bay, 2-3ft wind swell at the dive location. These first two dives today have been “manta-stic”! The guests were asking for mantas and Cabo Pearce did not disappoint. Both dives have had numerous mantas, but especially the second dive provided for very playful, and up to 5 chevron and black mantas at a time. Galapagos and Hammerhead sharks also accompanied the divers, as well as large schools of Jacks and Tuna. Visibility was a little worse than Roca, but not terrible at around 60ft. Water temp at 77 degrees, with a considerable South to North running current. Were diving with the Cassiopeia. Well checked-in with the Navy after the 3rd dive and heading to Punta Tosca for silky snorkel this evening. Tomorrow we’re planning on going to the Canyon.
