Good afternoon, everyone. Vessel currently at Anchor at Cabo Pearce. Stbd Anchor 2.5 Shackles in the water. We completed the 3rd dive at Roca Partida in the vein as the first 2 and we steamed overnight to Cabo Pearce, arriving early morning.

We commenced diving at 0800, first dive guests saw a large school of Hammerheads, several Mantas were in attendance, a dozen or dolphins arrived towards the end of the dive much to the delight of several onboard.

Right at the very end when we were recovering, the last group a tiger shark loomed out of the darkness. The tiger shark was female and pregnant. During the 2nd dive, the seas were an overall quieter experience, and the guests still had a wonderful time.

Current experienced by the divers was around 2Kts at times but was no difficulty for our groups. WX: Gentle breeze from the north, slight seas with a low 4ft swell. Partially cloudy sky and good visibility. The Vessel is lying quietly at anchor sheltered from everything in the bay.
