Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2023-09-06

Belle Amie diving Isla San Pedro Martir today. Another beauty of a day. Light breeze from the west, 1′ seas, clear skies, air temp 34C.

Sharing the island with the Rocio del Mar and the Guardian of Quinoa today, but plenty of room here for everyone. Well, except in the anchorage, no room for me there, so we are drifting near the divesites, engines off when I’m not moving. We made good time overnight, averaging 10kts at 1400rpm and arrived at 0700.

2 dives done so far, both great. Loads of playful sealions here at ‘El Arroyo’. They seem to have a different behavior here than in the south. Packs of the juveniles will get together and come straight at the boats, jumping like dolphins, then circle the boat in that same style until they get bored. Watching them come from afar looks like pirates coming to take the vessel.

Besides the sealions we had some big schools of sardines at the surface, multiple turtles, loads of nudibranchs, and lots of healthy black coral.Two more dives here this afternoon then overnight to Bahia de Los Angeles. Guests and crew are doing well. Everyone seems to be feeling good today. Got some great feedback on the food today at lunch.
