Captain’s Noon Reports – Gallant Lady – 2023-10-09

NGL is in San Pedro Martyr.

Clear blue sky, air temp 31C, water temp 28C, visibility 10meters. Wind is SSE 10kn but we are protected from it on the west side of the island.

After a very smooth crossing with pushing seas, we arrived at SanPedroMartyr early morning. The view of the island is always impressive for first comers, with the many Californian sealions sleeping at the feet of sheer cliffs covered by the Mexican “snow”, the guano of entire generations of seabirds repainting the island. This guano was before collected to be sold as fertilizers, and traces of that ungrateful work can be seen on the island.

The first 2 dives were done on the divesite Arroyo: the sealions are plenty and playful, curious with the divers and very amusing. Gardens of black corals can be found in the deeper areas and there are plenty of reef fish, big groupers, lobsters, and turtles. This afternoon we will do two more dives here and lift anchor after dinner to head to Bahia de Los Angeles.
