Captain’s Noon Reports – Explorer – 2023-08-19

10.51.060N – 085.57.309W, anchored in 205Ft of water.

Today we are diving Bat Islands, the wind is doing 12kts NE and gusting to 20kts, the air temperature is 88F today water is 88Ft, they say visibility is 80 plus feet, no current easy dive.

Loads of tropical fish, no luck with the bull sharks yet, and a mix of clouds and blues in the sky. The ocean on this side of the islands is calm but outside of the Lee side there is some wave action, waves are 3ft NE.

Yesterday afternoon they had some good dives on Catalina island, they had loads of octopus and all kinds of fish, they loved the night dive. Only Sally had a problem getting in the water and as soon as she went in she shot back to the surface. My opinion is that she was too scared.

We are now towing the pangas so at morning times getting the boats and deck ready for diving is easier for the crew but that adds an extra worry for me, we keep trying to see if we can please the guests.

Last night we did taco night for everyone and guests love it,

No new deficiencies to report
