Captain’s Noon Reports – Gallant Lady- 2021-10-09

Location: Isla Carmen

Weather: Strong NNW Wind (20kts) and N Swell (1ft)

We finished yesterday afternoon with two dives at San Rafael, which is a rock at the south end of Isla San Marcos. It’s a shallow dive but the divers said it was full of life and one of the better dives, with clear water and loads of fish along the east side of the rock.

This morning we’ve done two dives at Punta Perico of Isla Carmen, which is the farthest eastern point of the island. The conditions are really nice, some good fish life on the outer part of that reef, some bigger pelagic fish, schooling jacks, a couple of turtles around. Guests are happy.

After today we have just two more dive days. Tomorrow we’re going to have strong northerlies again so we’re going to dive the south end of Espiritu Santo, Salvatierra, Suwanee, maybe Fang Ming. The last dive day, the 11th it looks like a break in the wind so we’re going to finish the trip at Las Animas. With the storm coming and turn day looking like it will be in La Paz it will be no problem to finish the trip there.

Visibility: 60ft

Water temperature: 78°F
