Captain’s Noon Reports – Under Sea – 2023-07-05

19.17.446N – 110.48.362W diving the CANYON, anchor resting in 55Ft of water, light NW breeze, huge SE swell, averaging 8 to 10Ft, swell stirs the bottom and shoreline up and visibility is low on the first 20 or 30 feet, then it gets better at deeper depth.

Today the ocean is a bit crazy temperature varies from 80F on the surface to 72F at the cleaning station in 80Ft. The first dive with no current, the second dive with a decent current running to the west bringing nice clean blue water. The cleaning station is taken by the silver tip sharks and the Galapagos, loads of fish at the canyon, a black manta that just cruised by then a chevron manta on their safety stop. Lots of silkies close to the surface. I am about to move the boat to the Boiler to seek cleaner water and just to finish with better manta action. Guests are happy they loved our burger under the stars from last night.
