Captain’s Noon Reports – UnderSea – 2022-01-22

Location: Cabo Pearce

Weather: Clear Skies, N Wind (4-8kts), NW Swell (2-4ft)

We are on our way back to Cabo San Lucas, The crossing is about as smooth as possible. The sea surface is calm with light ripples, no white caps, and surface visibility of over 20nm. Traffic is very light.

The divemasters are completing as much before arrival as possible. Cleaning the lazarette, skiffs are cleaned and waxed, Compressor filling tests are being done, the slideshow is scheduled for 13:30, rental gear is clean and either drying or packed and ready for shore.

The guests are relaxing around the vessel sunbathing editing photos and having some cold beers. They seem very happy overall with the trip and really every day really has offered something different than the last. Not really any slow days as every site has delivered this week.

The last dive yesterday at Cabo Pearce was very nice with plenty of mantas, however, they were all on the surface feeding. It also yielded some dolphins for some of the divers also but they didn’t stick around too long. A couple of hammerheads also as well as a lot of flounders and a Nudibranch. After the dive when the second two groups surfaced there were five mantas on the surface and the dolphins kept returning. We removed everyone’s gear and they all kept snorkeling for about another 30 minutes. After returning to the vessel the energy was really high. We ran snorkeling around the vessel with the Silkies, then again at Cabo Pearce with the mantas, followed by a sunset skiff tour and even some kayaking. It was a really nice end to the final day of the trip with all the guests just really enjoying the moment and each other’s company.
