Captain’s Noon Reports – Explorer – 2023-09-22

5.37.704 N – 87.03.924W, anchor in 85Ft of water. We are in Wafer Bay. Today is a beautiful day, light winds flat ocean lots of sunlight, some clouds up in the sky. Water and air temperature are 84F, visibility is over 100Ft, easy dive no current.

We are diving Dirty Rock and Pan de Azucar (new dive site) both pretty nice. Dirty Rock the best of the two, it had many hammerheads in second dive, they were getting cleaned by the baber fish. The school of horse eyed jacks was tight in a huge ball, I can see the bid shadow from the panga. The white tip sharks, the marble rays, and a lot more guests are enjoying their time in the water.

In the new dive site, the second dive has a little surprise towards the end of the dive. While doing safety stop divers, we were able to see a whole bunch of white tips doing the mating ritual and swimming in a thick stream of sharks all chasing after a female. Too bad it was at the end. Some of the guests decided they wanted to go to one of the waterfalls. We called the ranger to ask them for permission and we dropped one of the DMs and left them on the beach while we took the other part of the group diving.
