Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2022-02-15

Location: Cabo Pearce

Weather: Clear Skies, Light NE Wind, Swell (1-3ft)

We made one more dive yesterday afternoon at Punta Tosca, conditions remained good, with great visibility and very little current. On the third dive, there were two mantas, a few distant hammerheads, and two tiger sharks. Overall it made for a good day of diving and guests were happy with the experience. After dive three we got underway for the navy base and made our check-in via radio before continuing on to anchor at Cabo Pearce. After dinner, we ran the silky snorkel, but only one guest was brave enough to get in the water and he had a great show. Around six large silkies circle the area. The action was perfectly mellow for the entire 20 minutes that we had him in the water.

Conditions so far this morning have been about as good as they can get. There is almost no wind, no clouds, very little current, and tons of wildlife. On one dive there were at least five mantas spotted, with a few of the guests seeing one or two hammerheads as well. On dive two there were probably six mantas on the site the entire time, with a school of 30-35 hammerheads making circles just south of the plaque, and dolphins present at the very start and the very end of the dive. Visibility is good enough that everybody was able to see everything that was in the area. This has been a wonderful trip, but it is hard not to think of this as the highlight. Two more to go here then we will finish our day with wine and cheese on the sundeck and a nice calm dinner at anchor before getting underway for Cabo late tonight.

Water temperature: 76°F

Visibility: 70-100ft
