Captain’s Noon Reports – Gallant Lady – 2023-08-08

NGL 24.48.654N 110.31.555W, clear sky, light breeze from the southeast, seas 1′ from SE, air temp 37C, water temp 29C, visibility 20 meters.

This morning we did 2 dives in the Mechudo channel and now we are sailing east of San Francisco looking for big animals. The first dive this morning was on Barra del Mechudo, and the guests loved it. There were lots of sardines on top of the reef, and the jacks, groupers, and some sea lions were hunting them. The 2nd dive was at the sea lion colony, and the sea lions were as friendly as they could be! They were playing with our guests the whole dive, being utterly curious and acrobatic, and the guests had an amazing time.

It was Laura’s 100th dive and she said there was no better way to celebrate it. Hostess Silvia had a cookie with a candle and the whole crew sang to celebrate her 100th dive. This afternoon we will do 1 more dive at the sea lion colony and then night dive in San Francisco Bay.

Yesterday afternoon we did 1 dive at shipwreck C59, visibility was lower than on the other dive sites, but guests enjoyed the spacious shipwreck and the turtles living on it. Then on their way to Dive 4, they saw a dozen bottlenose dolphins. They tried to get the attention but the dolphins were not much interested in the rhib or the guests. Dive 4 was in Candelero bay. We ended the day with taco night under the stars
