    Beautiful morning today in the Island of the Sharks! Incredible visibility in the water, clear sunrise and nice warm breeze that makes this day a perfect day in terms of weather conditions. Since early morning, sharks in submersible and surface cages and together with that visibility, making the day for our divers. We are able to identify Slash Fin and Andy ( our best coworkers in the water since my start in Guadalupe). Also, at least 2 big females in surface and other 3 / 4 sharks without identify yet are swimming around the submersible cages all the dives. Best dives and conditions to start that amazing trip , again with the sweet words “ best day in my life” “awesome”!!

    Today has been a great morning, besides the wind, everything else has been great, water visibility, Sunny day and of course the sharks. We have had around 6 different sharks the whole morning and that has been constant. Action at surface started early today with a shark passing around the bait, then in surface calmed down but in submersible cages action was good 3 sharks at the same time. Then around 10 am and until now the action in surface has been great, We had Luca Arnone around stealing tuna from the wranglers. We had a massive female shark that came up and passed really close from the surface cage, there were some good pictures of her from the divers that were in the cage. It has been a great day to finish the trip. Wind has been blowing mostly from South but we have had Strong wind gusts from the North. Yesterday afternoon was great as well from noon until 2pm sharks were around the boat and after the tuna, one of the divers said that it was the best two diving hours he ever had. There was a female shark with over 20 pilot fish around her. Guests doing great.

    Jawesome evening yesterday in the submersible cages with constant females coming to swim around the cages. Shark id was conducted with lots of expectation and cocktail hour attended by DMs, mate and capie. During shark id we start with some daiquiris and beers. Strong winds today are making the cages operations more difficult. We help the guests that needs extra assistance to get in and out and pass the weight belts when they are in the door of the cage. We have visits from Andy, Slash fin and 2 beautiful females. All divers are happy cause in all dives they were always able to see sharks, and this is why we are here. Today we start our way home, heading north with rough seas forecast and strong winds, guests are briefed in that and hope they can enjoy very much their last night on board. All guests and crew doing great.

    Location: At Anchor at Guadalupe, 260 ft depth. Pos. Lat 29 08.28N Long. 118 17.05W

    Weather: Sunny skies. Wind feel from S 6-10 kts with wind gusts from North 20+ kts Seas from North 1-3 ft Water temp 19-20C, Visibility 60-70ft

    Yesterday afternoon was good action during the first 2 hours, After 3pm winds started to blow strong and there was no sign of sharks. By 4:30 pm all divers were done diving and watching just from the sundeck, where the wranglers are trying to attract the sharks. There was a shark trying to take the bait the last hour of the day. We ended the day with a delicious taco night. By night time wind was calm, there was only swell coming from the north. This morning the day started nice with some sharks mostly deep and sometimes they came up to the bait. Strong wind gusts over 20 kts started blowing from the N making the boat swing around and hardly see any sharks, but the boat keeps holding position. Wind gusts has calmed down right now and the boat has stopped swinging. Hope this afternoon the wind calms down to have good shark action. Visibility was great this early morning, but when wind gusts started it decreased. Temperature has been the same. Guests are doing great.

    Arrived to Guadalupe last night around 2100 hrs after quite a rough transit from Ensenada. There was some wind gusts at the anchorage when we were putting the cages in the water. This morning we started to drag anchor around 6am and we had to move and relocate the anchor, holding good now. Shark action started right away as we throw the first bait into the water. One shark came up to surface passing around the bait and trying to get it. After that action calmed down at the surface, but deep in submersible cages sharks were around. Last past hour the action at surface got much better having Luca Arnone giving some show to our guests. We have seen around 6-7 different sharks this morning which is amazing, Luca Arnone, Andy, Mace are some identified sharks and we think Rhett was around as well. Winds are mostly light around the place but there are the strong wind gusts that makes the boat swings around, there is some swell from the north 1-2 ft.
