Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2022-04-18

Location: Cabo Pearce

Weather: Clear Skies, N Wind (15kts Swell (1-3ft)

We completed two more dives yesterday at the boiler. Dive three had at least four mantas in the area and just like on the morning dives, all divers got good, close, looks. Dive 4 was more mellow, with just one or two passes by the mantas off in the distance. But all in all, it was a great day of diving, despite the challenging surface conditions.

We got underway right after dive 4 and ran south to Cabo Peace and anchored up around 2230. The day has been windy, but surface conditions still feel mild compared with yesterday. And the dives have been great. Divers so far have seen hammerheads, five mantas, and just on dive two, we had a group of dolphins cruise past some of the divers. There was a group of about 30 bottlenoses playing in the bay after divers got out and lots of the guests were able to see them from the skiffs. The current was nil on dive one but began to pick up on dive two. We have one more dive scheduled for the afternoon and then we will get underway for the navy check-in. Silky snorkel after dinner tonight and then on to Roca.

Water temperature: 74°F

Visibility: 60-70ft
