Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2024-05-21

18.59.440N – 112.04.945W, anchored in Roca Partida. Cloudy day with lots of light.

Wind was a bit strong this morning reaching 10kts NW but now wind is gone, long big 6ft NW swell, today they have a little current running to the west, visibility depending where you are averages 80FT. they say water temperature is 75F., air temperature is 76F, boat is rocking and rolling some, just now is sideways to the swell so it makes it uncomfortable for guests to walk around in these swells.

The dives; both morning dives have been good, first one had a big family of dolphins playing around they stayed with the guests for long time and they all love it, the north corner is hot, loads of sharks, silver tips, white tip reef sharks, Galapagos, and a bunch of silkies.

The cotton mouths and horse eyed jack are around, some of the guests are surprised on how the lobster and the reef sharks share the balconies, the safety stop was busy as they kept seeing the wahoo and yellowfin tunas zipping by.

Dive guides are telling me there is this thermo down to 60ft of water where water is colder and murky.

Guests enjoying the dives, yesterday for the first time we had to use the three skiffs for the skiff tour as every single person on the boat went in it.
