Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2021-10-19

Location: Guadalupe Island

Weather: Overcast Skies, NNE Winds (8-12kts), and NNE Swell (2-3ft)

Yesterday afternoon was a bit milder than yesterday morning, but only slightly. There was still a pretty constant rotation of sharks making the rounds, both on the surface and below. Everybody agrees that it was a perfect day. At shark ID last night we were able to ID 6 individuals, with at least four others that were not in the book.

This morning started a bit slower than yesterday, with the first shark making an appearance around 0800. The first couple of submersible cage dives were very mellow, with one or two sharks making occasional passes in the deep. Visibility is a bit less than yesterday so the sharks disappear more easily into the milky water. But divers are still very happy with the show and by mid-morning, the action had picked up considerably, with some divers seeing three-four sharks at the same time while in the water.

Surface action has been decent though not constant. Just before I came up we had one large shark make a near-full breach trying to get my bait. It is a great time again today.

We will finish on schedule and begin picking cages up at 1630, shooting for a 1730 departure towards Ensenada. The weather doesn’t look too bad so we should make it right on time tomorrow.

Visibility: 80-100ft+

Water temperature: 68°F
