  • Captains Noon Report – Undersea

    Location: At anchor at Guadalupe Island in 257 ft depth. Lat 29 08.00N Long 118 17.04W. 0.160 NM from shore

    Weather: Mostly E’ly light winds, SSE 2-3 ft long period swell. Complete overcast skies, mist and drizzle.. Water Vis 30ft at Surface , water temp 20C.

    This morning started chilly and gray, completely overcast skies and some mist around as per the TS which it has been decreased. Swell is not bad, is much better than the forecast shows but with it visibility decreased considerably at surface, making a little bit challenging the shark wrangling. Regarding shark action, it has been slow due to the weather conditions, but it hasn’t been bad. Sharks are being around and has stole some baits with a good half body breaches. Probably we have seen 4 different ones this morning. One Shark that has been a while here and had stole a few baits is “Jacques”. Yesterday afternoon shark action was great, we had 3 different sharks at surface a few times. Luca Arnone were here most part of the afternoon giving some good show to our divers. Another shark that we identified was Renegade. At the end of the day we could saw around 11 different sharks. We ended the day with a delicious taco night. Guests and crew doing great.

    Location: Anchored at the sweet spot

    Weather: winds light and variable, seas calm, swell 1-3 ft out of the south what an amazing morning.

    At 0645 we had 3 sharks at the surface coming after the tuna. Wranglers really had to be on their toes all morning. We have counted at least 6 different sharks so far, names to come later once we do some shark ID this evening. It has been an epic morning so far. Feels great to be back out here. The visibility at the surface is 10-15 feet increasing to 30 at times and then back down, submersible cages at depth are seeing 80+ feet. No current. Water temp is 21C.

    Weather: Mostly light variable winds and calm seas. Sunny skies with patches of low clouds. Vis 90+ft , water temp 20C.

    Arrived last night at Guadalupe after a nice and smooth ride from Ensenada. As soon as we were at anchor, we deployed cages in the water, there were a lot of storm petrels flying around the boat, as soon we finished, we turn off all deck lights to avoid that storm petrels landing in to the boat. This morning guests were ready at 6:30 to jump in the cages and after 20 min the first shark appeared. It has been a good morning, we have seen around 6-7 different sharks so far, no one identified yet. In one of the submersible dives they saw 5 different sharks, 4 males and 1 med-large female with a couple of pilot fishes. Guests had been spending the morning in the cages, as they are pretty excited and happy to see sharks. Looking forward for a great end of the day with more shark action.

    Yesterday finished strong with plenty of action and we have added a couple more sharks to the identification list: Slash Fin, Mace and Kaitlin. We have been seeing more females this trip. This morning Mike was in charge providing non-stop action, going back and forth repeatedly from one wrangler to the other. While the day started out overcast the sun is shining now giving us pretty much perfect diving conditions. We have a few more hours of diving before heading back to Ensenada so right now the cages are full.
