Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2023-12-06

18.46.751N – 111.02.867W anchored in 100ft of water 3 shots paid out.

Punta Tosca is delivering some very good dives, guests have seen mantas, sharks, loads of fish, and octopus and the interaction with the mantas has been really good for some.

I dropped my second group in the second finger and while waiting on the skiff and minding my own business, out of the corner of my eyes I saw this blackfin and for a second I thought MANTA then I looked at it and it was the full length of my skiff……….. A WHALE SHARK, this fish must it be at least 20ft.

Nothing frustrates me more than seeing some that guests don’t, but for my fortune ELINE and her group saw it, they have some good videos so the third dive is going to be the whale shark hunting dive.

Today the wind is gusting to 18kts NW steady winds are 10kts, calm seas in this area but outside the shelter, I can see some white caps, the air temp is 82f and the water is about 80f. little to no current visibility averages 70ft of water. Guests were very happy with the dives and weather conditions. Adam did not dive yesterday he says he feels off since the beginning of the trip but today is feeling pretty good. Felipe just took him on a 101 and he did pretty good two mantas circled them at their safety stop.
