Captain’s Noon Reports – Explorer – 2023-05-31

Hi everyone, NEX anchored at San Benedicto, diving the canyon, we have strong wind from NNW 15 knots plus and 2-3 ft wrapping swell, sky partially clouded, Water temp. is 24 Celsius and visibility is around 20 meters.

This morning during DMs dive briefing, a pod of false killer whales passed by, and all our guests were very excited. To add more happiness during their first dive a pod of dolphins stayed with them for a very good time. They also saw a huge tiger shark, a school of hammerheads, lots of Galapagos sharks, octopus, lobsters, and lots of reef fish.

Between dive 1 and 2, I took them for a skiff tour and we saw at least 5 mantas next to the lava finger, they were swimming in formation and we were very happy to see this show. During dive number 2, the action was pretty much the same but this time no dolphins, instead our divers saw a manta. At this moment dive number 3 is about to start and we will have a 4th one. After dinner, we will move to Socorro and dive in Pearce tomorrow.

The original plan was to dive Roca on the 1st but in my opinion, June the 2nd will be better.
