Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2024-04-25

19.17.778N – 110.48.643W, anchor in 50Ft of water, cloudy day, wind have been crazy this morning at the time it went to 30 plus knots and I got a 40kts reading in my anemometer. Air temperature is 75F same as water.

Today there was no current and divers say they were able to see 60ft and more. The thing is with this crazy wind we had loads of ashes in the water and we had different layers and different visibilities depending on your depth, but the average was 60Ft.

Tons of sharks and dive guides told me they noticed the hammerhead sharks were behaving differently today and they were coming up close to divers, swimming between divers and the cleaning station. Many silvertip sharks, Galapagos, silkies, and of course the white tip reef sharks were around.

Some lucky ones saw a couple of dolphins zipping by, a black manta performed for the divers for a few minutes then vanished in the blue water.

I have never seen this side of the island this rough, white caps everywhere 2ft chops making the dive platform difficult for guests and crew who had to try hard in order to keep things safe.

Guests and crew doing good.
