    Good afternoon 12:30 hrs. On the surface, Visibility: +100 ft. All cages working only on the surface, in the morning we had our first sharks at 0700 it was “Lucy” coming with “Luca” & “Andy”, all of them interacting with the wranglers. Tonight all the guests were to sleep very soon and this morning all of them waked up very early, putting his wetsuits and trying to get a place in some of the cages. All is happy guests and crew.

    We have a great view of the mountain range to the forward starboard bow. The rugged mountains are a rough brown rising and falling with several peaks. The charter was another descent into amazement. The large female sharks are here. We had 4 sharks yesterday at over 10 feet each. We had Lucy and a new female that looks like a mix between a great white and bull shark. Scarboard is a brute. Her head is wide is a rising bump on her back just before the dorsal fin. She looks like a comic book drawing with exaggerated features. Although Lucy is massive, Scarboard just leaves you in awe, she must be 15 feet. It just keeps getting better as the season continues.

    Another good day. Three sharks to start the day building up to five at one time. Lucy has come around and even made a run for the surface bait coming straight up and throw half of her body out of the water. Tuna and yellow tails are everywhere. Bait fish are staying close to the hull because the tuna are very active. Wind has picked a little from yesterday. Everyone having a good time. crew good/guests good.

    It’s nice to have the sun beating down on our faces. The light underwater is amazing. The sun rays pierce the water sending beams of dancing light shards through the liquid medium. We have had an early shark come up to the surface in the morning and then when the cages were lowered to depth we had one big female lurking and coming into our waiting baits. There is a new shark that we haven’t seen. A female, medium in size with the lower portion of her tail is missing. We had a good frenzy at the surface with two sharks racing at the baits. Right after the action calmed there was a duck that waddled in just behind the baits. With a minute we could see the shadow of a sharks finding a path to the bobbing duck. The shark opened it’s mouth and the shark missed the duck. With the duck stunned the shark came by again and the duck vanished under the surface. Four seconds later the duck came to the surface and the shark went on it’s way. All guests, crew & duck happy.

    Today is beautiful, changing some as this morning it drizzled a bit, then a nice rainbow over Guadalupe, it was a bit cloudy this morning but then the sun burnt thru the clouds, water is 70F and air is 68F, there is no current and we have a light breeze from the NE, the action almost non stop, guests are up and ready to go by 5:45 as soon as we open the cages they get in, water visibility is over 100FT, we also have the yellowfin tunas around and the smelts and little mackerels have no chance when tunas go after them. today weather conditions are super good i guess the Explorer brought us good luck, we are sharing the island with the Explorer & the Undersea, and the islander. All guests are happy happy!

    Good afternoon. Sea temp: 68-F, Visibility: +100 ft. Wrangling and diving ops started as per scheduled. DM report at least 5 different sharks on the submersibles cages at the same time and they can not identify any of them. On the surface cages we have had since early at least two sharks at the same time. Some of our guests are on the dive deck trying to take the best photo for their memories.
