Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2023-12-07

18.59.455N – 112.05.884W boat held by the anchor resting in 245ft.

Day is beautiful wind is doing 8kts NE, the air temperature is 78f, clear skies, and the swell is NW on Roca Partida, I can see the ocean going up and down at least 12ft is not really breaking against the rock but yes, the swell is wild. No wind waves lucky us.

The current was not there in the first dive and the second had a little running to the south. Divers enjoyed their dives, two very friendly mantas stayed with them for the entire dive. Then towards the end of the dive dolphins came and some of the guests had their dolphin time.

Divers say in one of the sides of the rock visibility is 120ft but on the other side vis is not that good, maybe 80ft, horse eyed jacks and cotton mouth jacks are in the rock but way deep. Some yellowfin tunas are patrolling the area, wahoo are seen at safety stops.

In the first dive, a bunch of white-tip reef sharks and two silver-tip sharks were on the hunt, and seemed they had some cornered in the reef, the action went on for some time until in a lightning move one of the sharks got the fish. The back deck is no problem I thought it was going to be a challenge but so far so good. Adam got his second 101 with Uriel today, he is loving it and he said he now wants to try it with the group.
