Captain’s Noon Reports – Explorer – 2023-09-07

5.33.167N – 87.02.395W tie up to a mooring in Chatham Bay. Yesterday the rangers came around and asked me to bring the anchor up and get on a mooring line so we did.

Today has been pretty nice dives. Have been up the Coco standards, loads of hammerhead shark, couple of eagle rays, marble rays, Galapagos sharks and tons of white tip reef sharks. Alcyone had a huge yellow fin tuna swimming between the diver with no fear, a bit of hog fish breaking the barnacles and eating them in front of our faces, the school of horse eyed jacks making a tornado jut above our heads. Diving is beautiful, easy diving, light current running north, visibility averages 80Ft, nice cool thermos in 80Ft of water reaching 79F, but close to the surface in 40Ft the temperature is 84F, air temperature is 84 too. The bay is nice and calm, flat ocean light breeze, cloudy skies. Outside is a different story as we made it around the corner, wind was doing around 12kts and waves were 4ft all going north.
