Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2023-12-15

18.46.667N – 111.02.858W anchored in 140ft of water today we are diving PUNTA TOSCA, the wind here is gusting to 22kts with steady 12 to 14kts, air temperature is 82f. clear beautiful skies, 1ft chops, and wind make white caps but it does not feel all that bad.

The dives have been good but not exciting, however, divers so far have seen a small squadron of hammers maybe a dozen, three mantas just cruising, loads of white tips reef sharks, and the usual cast of reef fish.

Water today is 80f, visibility averages 50ft, greenish water with loads of good nutrients for the fish. Current on the first dive was strong running to the west and it shifted for the second dive with a big surge too, one more dive here than navy inspection.

Yesterday on the last dive of the day our divers saw dolphins, tiger sharks, a huge school of tuna, mantas, silver tips sharks, and Galapagos. Some of the girls in the group got emotional and cried, such a good dive.
