Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2023-05-05

Anchor at San Benedicto, Canyon, Winds: N 14 -16 kts sometimes gust around 20 knots, Seas: NW 1-2ft short period of swell.

Yesterday we arrived in San Benedicto at 2300. We dropped the anchor and spent the night here. Today we started our warm-up dive at Fondeadero. In general, our divers did a good job for a group who required more attention as they are new divers and the conditions are not the best for them in Socorro. Conditions here are a challenge anyway and we are trying hard to provide them with a good experience.

We encountered at Fondeadero Tiger sharks and a Manta who was friendly. Dive conditions: the current was strong heading to the S, with visibility around 15 Mts. In the 2nd dive, we encountered some Galapagos sharks, a lot of white tips sharks, and some hammerhead sharks 5 of them.

Our guests are very happy, we are going to perform 2 dives more at Canyon and after dinner, we are going to sail to Roca Partida.
