Captain’s Noon Reports – Explorer – 2023-10-28

NEX currently around 25NM south of Isla Margarita. Wind is light from the north, swell is a gentle 3′ from the W, sky is mostly clear. Air temp 27C.

Last two days have been great. After Dave and Ranulfo reported all the action south of Margarita with the spotter plane, we started yesterday morning searching this area.

Yesterday morning started slow but we found the action and that continued into today. The entire area down here is just alive with animals. Marlins jumping, big schools of Mahi Mahi, today some static bait balls getting fed on by bryde whales, a sail-fish spotted, plus loads of bottlenose dolphins and sealions also feeding on the bait balls. Today especially the Brydes whales were coming up through the bait right in front of the guests in the water, one for the books for sure. In the morning we took the Russian group for a dive on the submarine wreck and although conditions not great, they enjoyed the dive. Ending this one on a high note. Water temp offshore with the bait balls a comfortable 24C and viz a beautiful blue 100ft.
