Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2024-06-02

Diving Roca Partida, 18.59.394N – 112.04.893W, anchor in 245FT.
Wind is doing 8kts NW, swell is 6ft NW, wind waves are 4ft NW too, dive platform is okay, we just need extra hands to help guests in and out of the skiffs, boat is just fine a little slow rolling, not much.

Diving is beautiful, north corner with tons of sharks, Galapagos, silver tips swimming just on that side of the rock. White tip reef sharks everywhere, some of the guests are fascinated with them, cotton mouth and horse eyed jacks all over the place at times they come together in a big tight ball.

Yellow fin tunas come zipping by no wonder why the jacks get all together as a defensive mechanism and still once in a while a tuna would snap one out of the ball.

In safety stop the stars are the wahoo some say they saw a whole school. In first dive a big family of dolphins came by, Andrea says she counted 17 in the group she saw, I was driving the inflatable and I saw how the big pod coming south to north split and some of the dolphins ran east of the rock and others west of it.

Visibility is the best of the week 120ft plus, little current running to the south, water is clear blue, temperature of the ocean is 76F, today air is 75F, clear skies.
