Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2024-02-03

Freezing day in San Benedicto, we are diving The Canyon 19.17.731N – 110.48.641W, anchor sitting in 55Ft of water, sharing the site with two other boats. We are the third boat and it is very unlikely we will do four dives, we will try but no way I am letting divers going in almost at sunset, anyways we will try and see.

Diving so far has been fantastic, first dive was a bit murky but in second dive current shifted from going east in first dive to running to the west now, our second dive was at 1200 next dive is at 1500.

They so far have seen mantas, the cleaning station was good in second dive with silkies, silver tips, schooling hammerheads and the tiger shark and for two of the groups the dolphins came and tried to get the guest to follow them to the deep water but guests were low on air already. Dolphins stayed for few minutes making for some of the divers the best dive of the week.

In first dive visibility was about 30ft but on second dive with the shifted current visibility improved to be 60Ft now, current is moderate, wind is doing 8kts NE gusting to 12 kts blowing loads of ashes to the boat. Cloudy skies for the most part.
