Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2024-05-31

18.46.650N – 110.54.598W, anchor resting in 110FT of water, clear skies, light winds inside the bay in Cabo Pearce, just outside the wind is doing 12kts NW, little 1 foot NW waves, air temperature and water are 76F, little current running down to the south.

Visibility (big sigh) in the north side of the finger visibility is nearly 80FT south of the finger there is this thermocline with greenish cold water reducing visibility down to 30ft, big change…

Manta action is the best so far in this trip, some say they saw a total of 6 different mantas, they have seen three mantas at the same time, huge Galapagos, octopus, white tip reef sharks, guests enjoying the mantas and the water conditions as for most of them the changes in visibility and even in water temperature is fun.

The Surge, first time ever for me to see the surge in Cabo Pearce the way it is today, at times the waves reach 25 to 30 feet up on the rocks, this goes for few minutes then stops for a little while then you can see how it starts to build up then up it goes again. There is this pinnacle just few yards from the actual point (island) in Cabo Pearce when the surge starts, I can see 8 to 10 feet down look like if the pinnacle shoot up in the air, thankfully the dive is good and guests are enjoying it.
