Captain’s Noon Reports – Explorer – 2022-04-26

Location: Cabo Pearce

Weather: Clear Skies, N Wind (8-12kts), Swell (2-3ft)

We made one more dive yesterday afternoon at Punta Tosca. Conditions calmed somewhat for the final dive, so current and surface conditions were better. Visibility was still somewhat low, but divers were able to get good looks at two mantas, three green turtles, and one or two hammerheads. Following the dive, we got underway and made the navy check-in en route to Cabo Pearce. All went without incident. We arrived at Cabo Pearce just before dinner and ran the silky snorkel starting at 2030. We had a good and mellow activity with around eight sharks the whole time. About half of the guests got in the water and everybody enjoyed the experience.

Conditions today at Cabo Pearce have been great. Dive one had almost no current and manta action the entire time. This visibility is the best the group has had so far and everybody is very happy with the morning. The current picked up to moderate running north during dive two, but that brought in some hammerheads that were seen near the deep cleaning station. One manta was making occasional passes by all divers and at least one group got up close and personal with a large tiger shark. Everybody is having a great time so far today. We plan for two more dives here this afternoon and plan to dive the boiler tomorrow now that the surface swell is dying down.

Water temperature: 74°F

Visibility: 60-80ft
