Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2021-10-24

Location: Guadalupe Island

Weather: Clouded Skies, Light Wind (4kts), and Swell (2-3ft)

Yesterday afternoon left everybody very shark satisfied. We had several large females circling below the cages all day, and in the mid-afternoon, until we closed the cages there were a few smaller animals passing regularly at the bait with the occasional near full breach by one of the larger ladies. It was fantastic. Seas remained choppy from swell and winds throughout the day, but the guests did not let it dampen their spirits. Shark ID was attended by almost everybody and we were able to identify six sharks.

This morning we woke to absolutely perfect conditions. The seas had calmed down considerably and there has been almost no wind. Underwater visibility is great. I can clearly see the anchor chain down to about 40′. The action started a bit slow today, with one or two sharks staying below the level of the sub cages for the first two hours, but by mid-morning, we were having great action at all depths. Lots of active passes by the bait and at least seven sharks seen so far today. It is going to be a great final day on the station.

Visibility: 150ft+

Water temperature: 67°F
