Captain’s Noon Reports – Gallant Lady – 2023-10-07

NGL is west of Isla Danzante – honeymoon cove

Clear blue sky with distant cumulonimbus above land mass, air temp 32C, water temp 30C, light breeze from the north, no swell.

This morning we did our first dive on the shipwreck C54 in the bay of Puerto Escondido. The shipwreck lies on a sandy bottom at 22meters depth and the top is at 10-12meters of depth. The conditions were so good today that we can see the shipwreck through the surface.

Underwater, the magic happened: millions of glassfish were surrounding the shipwreck, dancing around the boat in a timely coordinated choreography of shining little fish and engulfing the divers as they swam through.

The shipwreck is a minesweeper about 120ft long and offers a lot of swimthroughs. There are plenty of grunts, skipjacks hunting, big groupers, yellow snappers, big sea of Cortez angelfish, and school of creole fish living in the shipwreck. It was so good that the guests asked to go again on dive 2!

This afternoon we will dive further north in Abysmo and Piedra Blanca on the west side of Isla carmen. Yesterday afternoon we did 1 dive at aquarium, where divers found perfect conditions for long muck diving, the nose in the sand to find plenty of jawfish, bullseyes stingray, garden eel and a long rock home of critters. Then we dove again at la Ventana to wrap up the day.
