Captain’s Noon Reports – UnderSea – 2022-01-20

Location: Punta Tosca

Weather: Clouded Skies, NE Wind (8-12kts), Calm Seas

We are anchored at Punta Tosca and the conditions are very favorable with calm seas, light winds. There are cloudy skies with blue sky patches and surface visibility is very clear. We have done two dives at Punta Tosca and today it was really good. In the first dive, all the groups saw dolphins up to around 20 with five of them coming right in and playing with some of the divers. There were also two chevron mantas that swam past but showed far less interest in the divers as is often the case here.

The second dive was a bit quieter with less of the big stuff, plenty of white tips, lobster, and usual reef critters. A manta did come to say hello also but did not stay long. However, all the guests were still very happy with the dive and are enjoying Punta Tosca.

Yesterday our last two dives at Roca Partida were good. The third dive had a very strong current from south to North which limited the site a bit but it was very sharky with many silvertips, one chevron manta on the North point cruising past, and plenty of white tips in the balconies and around the site. Some large Yellowfin Tuna were patrolling the reef and one group saw white tips hunting on the reef for a couple of minutes.

The final dive was similar with one manta cruising past, the silver tips still active as they had been all day, tunas patrolling the reef, and one group saw a couple of mobula rays when doing their safety stop.

Water temperature: 78°F
