Captain’s Noon Reports – Gallant Lady – 2024-03-20

NGL anchored at San Jose Island in front of the mangrove entrance. Wind is NE 10-12kts with a light chop, sunny skies, air temp 28C.

Yesterday afternoon we ended up staying anchored up at the SW side of Montserrat Isle in Loreto to stay out of the wind and swell. The guests enjoyed snorkelling the reef that is there in front of the lighthouse and some paddling in the sheltered waters as well. Then it was taco night which was a hit as always.

Overnight we transited south, very smooth ride, to the sealion colony at San Francisco. We spent the morning there today both paddling and snorkelling with the sealions, and they had a blast interacting with the sealions in the water. For most it was their first time in the water with an animal like that and it was exciting for them.

Over lunch we repositioned up here to San Jose and we’ll spend the afternoon here, Tide is starting to rise now so plan is to paddle in through the mangroves mid to late afternoon, then once all back onboard head down to Espiritu Santo.

Tomorrow we’ll be at Espiritu Santo and then we have one more day, which I’m considering maybe anchoring in front of El Saltito beach on the west side of Cerralvo channel and have some air supported whale watching. Maybe if we’re lucky find some mobulas.

Forecast for the last day looks good for that area.
