Captain’s Noon Reports – Explorer – 2023-09-23

5.32.694N – -87.03.929W anchor in 85FT of water. We just dropped anchor in Wafer Bay this morning. We did Alcyone twice each group, we were in Chatham Bay and after the dives we went for a ride around the island. It took us 1.5 hours to make it all the way around, is a total of 12NM.

The morning dives were probably the best dives of the week. As far as the hammerhead sharks, they were in such quantity that is impossible to think of a number and be right, some say hundreds, others say thousands, what is true is that the experience is a life changer. Guests loved the dives and we are happy.

Ocean has been flat almost no current, light winds, temperature of water and air is the same 84F, cloudy skies today no rain and enough light for the dives. Apart from hammers, the white tips, the marble ray, the mullet snappers, the horse eyed jacks that start to pair up to mate, male turns himself black in order to attract the females (boys you know) and so many other fish. Visibility averages 80FT.
