Captain’s Noon Reports – Under Sea – 2023-12-03

Yesterday evening we had an easy transit with a gentle rolling swell out of the NNW.  Pushed us right along.   We dropped anchor at Fundedero this morning as the Quino was up close to the Canyon. 

We have had two wonderful dives this morning with everyone coming back really excited on both dives.  Dive 1 at Fundedero was typical.  We had good visibility of about 60 ft, light current west to east, and temps were 78F.  Most groups saw a manta and lots of white tips and some Galapagos and silky sharks.

Dive 2 was at the Canyon.  Similar conditions.  The wind is picking up a little and the swell is mostly out of the east with a secondary swell out of the WSW.  In the Canyon all groups saw a school of hammerheads and two mantas at the cleaning stations.  2 groups saw a long very large hammerhead and a tiger shark.  Visibility is down to 40-50 ft but the marine life is great.
