Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2023-05-17

Anchor at Cabo Pearce, Winds: NW 5 -8 knots sometimes gust around 12 knots, Seas: NW 2-8 ft long period of swell outside of the bay.

Yesterday we finished our diving day at Punta Tosca with a very calm dive. We encountered a manta and 1 hammerhead shark but due to visibility, we could not enjoy it very well. After the dive, we picked up the anchor and sailed directly to the Navy. The inspection was by radio without news,  and after we finished with the navy we performed a MOB Drill. All the guests were watching us and the crew did a good job. Then we moved to Pearce and spent the night at anchor.

Today our 1st dive at Pearce was epic. We encountered a school of hammerhead sharks more than 20 of them, some dolphins which came to play for a while, and the mantas were around the place all the time. The conditions were very nice, visibility was around 90 ft but the current was strong to the S. For the 2nd dive, the conditions were the same but it was not as amazing as the first one. But we still encountered some mantas and hammerheads sharks. We are going to perform 2 more dives.
