Captain’s Noon Reports – Gallant Lady – 2023-10-19

NGL is in Las Animas, heaving up anchor to reposition in San Francisco Bay.

Clear blue sky, wind is strengthening to 10knts and more after a very calm morning. The swell 2-3ft from north is wrapping around the island.
Water temp 29C, air temp 32C.

First dive this morning the conditions were very good, 15 to 20meters visibility with just enough current to dive the north islet in search of the hammerheads. And they did not disappoint! All guests that dove saw the hammerheads, about 7 of them making circles and several passes, while at the same time a school of yellow snapper was hunting needle fish and sealions were messing with all the above. Divers said the scenery was unbelievable and they are very happy to see the hammerheads.

Second dive we jumped in the bay with the Californian sealions and Guadalupe fur seals. They were very playful and numerous and very curious with all of our guests.
As the weather conditions are getting rougher, we reposition to SanFrancisco bay for dive 3 and night dive. Yesterday afternoon we did a dive at La Ventana, on the east side of Isla Danzante. the visibility was good, the guests enjoyed the reef fish and the sea fans, and the topography of the divesite. The night dive displayed a lot of sea cucumbers eating, sea slugs, lobster and shrimps as well as much bioluminescence.
