Location: Isla Lobos
Weather: Clear Skies, N Wind (15-20kts), NNW Swell (2-3ft)
We boarded guests just after 1730 last night and got underway as soon as we completed the safety talk and boat drill, making way through the night for the areas around Isla San Fransisco. We had some motion overnight as we ran up the east cape. 4-5 footers pushed by winds around 15 knots. But the ride was not too uncomfortable and all guests awoke in great spirits. We completed dive orientation and gear setup as we approached our first anchorage here at Isla Lobos. It took some extra time for guests to dial in their weights and set-ups, but everybody was in the water within 30 minutes of the target.
Once in the water, everybody seems to have enjoyed themselves. there was some current complicating the start of the dive, but up closer to the island there was enough lee for everybody to take it easy. There were scorpionfish, nudibranchs, and plenty of puffers to be seen. All guests had a good time. The plan for the rest of today is to make two dives this afternoon at San Fransiquito and
hopefully a night dive back here at Lobos.
Water temperature: 84°F
