Captain’s Noon Reports – Explorer – 2024-02-22

Good afternoon, everyone, NEX anchored at Punta Tosca, 130 ft depth, 3 shots paid out, northerly wind 10 kts gusting 15 kts and 1-2 ft swell inside the bay, air temperature is 23C.

We finished our diving day yesterday in Cabo Pearce, action was good, there were 3 mantas, 1 of them was pregnant. This manta passed very close to one group of divers and when passing by the other 2, was on top of the divers. It was a great scene; current was a little strong but not affecting guests’ experience.

Today we started our ops. at 0800 and so far we have done 2 dives, both of them have very been good. During the dives our guests saw a big pod of dolphins, they said 40 plus and they were very friendly and interacted with our divers.

During dive 2 they saw 3 mantas some scattered hammerheads, some silky sharks, white tips, a Galapagos shark the usual reef fish and 2 of them told me that they did like the topography a lot. Guest Natasha who was snorkeling also saw a turtle and some white tipped sharks, this turtle stayed with her almost the entire time she was snorkeling.

High light of the day is that Celina and 1 of her divers saw a whale in the distance under water, rest of the guests saw the whales while they were being taken to the dive site. Diving conditions: VIZ -20 meters, water temperature is 24 and light current. We will have our dinner on the hook and after that we will heave up anchor and will go to Roca Partida.
