Captain’s Noon Reports – Gallant Lady – 2022-05-26

Location: Las Animas

Weather: Clear Skies, SE Wind (5kts), Swell (1ft)

Started the day at the south end of Isla San Jose and searched the San Jose channel this morning before heading east towards Las Animas. On the way over we ran into a huge pod of bottlenose, numbering at least 500, and we spent more than an hour cruising with them, snorkeling and watching them jump and play in our wake. Now all the guests are snorkeling around Las Animas with dozens of sea lions and Guadalupe fur seals, more than we’ve ever seen there before actually.

If our spotter plane doesn’t find anything north of us we’ll head south after lunch and may end the day with a beer on the beach to watch the sunset, unless we run into any big animals and decide to stay with them. We’ll see what mother nature turns up for us this afternoon.

Water temperature: 75°F

Visibility: 60ft
