Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie- 2022-04-09

Location: The Boiler

Weather: Clear Skies, NW Wind (5kts), NW Swell (5-6ft)

We made two more dives at the canyon yesterday afternoon, each was better than the last with multiple manta sightings, plenty of Silvertips and Galapagos at the cleaning station, and one large school of hammerheads that came very close by the groups. Everybody loved the dives. We had a great taco night on the sundeck and then repositioned to the boiler for a calm night at anchor.

The first dive this morning here had moderate current from the north and somewhat poor visibility, around 15 meters. But there were at least two mantas present and a group of around 10 bottlenose dolphins came in for a very close show. All of our divers loved it. Dive two had much less current and more visibility but was fairly quiet for animals. But divers all enjoyed the topography now that they could see it and the last group of divers had a large manta pass just below them on their safety stop. Everybody is excited for the afternoon.

We will plan for two more dives here and then we will reposition overnight to Roca Partida.

Water temperature: 74°F

Visibility: 60-90ft
