Captain’s Noon Reports – Explorer – 2023-08-29

8.42.821N – 83.53.309W anchor in 55Ft of water.

We are back in Cano Island. Last night we had to leave and spend the night in Drake´s bay, this morning we moved the boat to a place somewhere between here and Drake´s bay, the site is called Paraiso (paradise).

It is a plateau in the middle of the ocean and the top is in 60ft of water with some boulders reaching 50 or so. There is loads of fish, turtle, white tip reef sharks, and a lot more. The whale activity around that place is amazing and divers keep hearing their singing. Today the water is 80Ft, anchor here and this morning in Paraiso you can see the bottom while standing on the dive platform of the boat.

Anyways the second dive took place in Bajo del Diablo. Guests insisted on going back there and it was pretty good again, the huge school of barracudas was still there, loads of grunts in huge schools, lots of cleaning station with the barber fish just waiting for other fish to get them clean.

While divers were down diving humpback whales were around the pinnacle. The highlight of the dive was the courtship and mating of the white tip reef shark, not sure if guests know how lucky they were seeing such a thing.

Today the ocean is nice and flat, cloudy skies with lots of sun. It is our rainy season in Costa Rica and that is the name of the game, rain and sun, light breeze, air temperature is 88F, water today is 86F, easy dive no current.
