Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2023-05-25

Anchor at Fondeadero, Winds: N 13 -15 knots sometimes gust around 17 knots, Seas: NW 1-3ft long period of swell.

Yesterday we finished our day at Pearce with amazing dives, we encountered the dolphins again but in this dive, we saw around 6 of them, around 7 different mantas, a school of hammerhead sharks, and amberjacks around. The visibility was decreasing but it still was good, and the current was moderated to the E. Then we waited after dinner to pick up the anchor and sail directly to San Benedicto and spent the night anchor at Fondeadero.

Today is cloudy around 5/8 of cumulus and cirrus clouds, 1st and 2nd dives were nice. In the 1st one, we saw silver tips, white tips, 1 black manta, and some silky sharks. The visibility is not the best because we have a green spot of water close to the Manta rock but it gets better once you are close to the cleaning station. The 2nd dive was very good as we encountered 6 dolphins that were following some tunas, the school of hammerheads was there, around 15 or 20 hammerheads sharks, a lot of octopus, black tip sharks, white tips sharks, silver tips sharks, and a huge Galapagos shark,

The visibility is not the best but it seems like it is clearer than the last one, we would say around 35 ft once you are in the cleaning station.
