Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2022-05-13

Location: Cabo Pearce

Weather: Clear Skies, N Wind (8-10kts), Swell (1-3ft)

We had one more dive here yesterday afternoon, the current was running very strong from the north and visibility was not the best, but there were three to four mantas present the entire dive, so divers were very happy with the day in total. We had an early dinner and then had 12 snorkelers for the silky snorkel. The action was very slow and mellow, with just one or two sharks making occasional passes, but every guest in the water got a few good looks. It was perfect, from my perspective.

We spent a very calm night here at anchor and have done two more dives so far this morning. We have the place to ourselves and the place is treating us well. Dive one had five mantas in the area. It started with no current but after the first 20 mins or so the current came in strong from the north. Everybody was a bit wary at the start of dive two, but there was no current at all. And the best visibility I have ever seen at Pearce, easily over 120′ we had a fantastic dive with at least three mantas making frequent
and close passes by all divers. Lots of comments about it being the best dive of the trip so far afterward. There were also one or two hammerheads spotted off in the distance on dive 2. Winds seem like they are dying down for the afternoon and everybody is looking forward to the next two dives. We will finish two more right here and then get underway immediately after number 3 for Roca.

Water temperature: 74°F

Visibility: 60-120ft
