Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2021-10-18

Location: Guadalupe Island

Weather: Overcast Skies, NNE Winds (5-8kts), and NNE Swell (1-2ft)

Yesterday afternoon continued like yesterday morning. pretty constant activity on the surface and below. The majority of the action from 1400-1630 was from one juvenile male. He was constantly circling the ship and making runs at both baits in quick succession. Great show. Around 1430 or so a couple of larger females made an appearance to help us finish out the day. All divers were out of the water by about 1700, fully satisfied with their first day on site.

This morning we woke up to absolutely pristine conditions. Sun was shining, water was almost flat calm and sharks were waiting for us. Just on the first two dives, I counted at least 10 individuals. Visibility is as good as it can get I can see the anchor chain very clearly. Divers in the surface cages had pretty non-stop action, and in the submersible cages, we could see sometimes five-seven sharks at once. Awesome day!

Clear skies have turned overcast in the past hour and it even looks like there is some rain coming our way, but rain or shine the sharks are here and our guests are thrilled!

Visibility: 150ft+

Water temperature: 68°F
