Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2021-10-08

Location: Isla Guadalupe

Weather: Skies Overcast, Moderate Wind (10-15kts), and NNE Swell (2-3ft)

Yesterday afternoon was just as great as yesterday morning, with fairly constant activity the whole time we had daylight. The action continued both at the surface and around the submersibles. Our divers all seemed to hit shark saturation around 1700 yesterday and nobody got in the water after that. We kept having fun from the wrangling platforms and the DMs used the extra time to get ahead on some tasks. Loud rounds of cheering for the success of the day at dinner last night. Everybody is extremely happy.

Action has been pretty mild this morning, with sharks present all day so far but almost always staying down deep. The submersible cages are getting occasional close passes, but mostly the two to three we keep seeing are staying around 50′. The guests are similarly subdued, waiting for the action to pick up before committing to getting in the water. Pretty slow at the cages, though probably 60% of guests have made at least one dip so far. Even without the constant activity of yesterday, all spirits are very high. There is fantastic energy with this group of guests. Everybody is mingling very well and enjoying the company. Cocktail hours and dinners are very lively and the guests are very appreciative of the crew. I have had comments from multiple people on how fantastic the crew is. I’m glad they see it too.

Visibility: 100-130ft

Water temperature: 70°F
