  • Captain’s Noon Report- Under Sea

    Location: Pos. Lat 18 46.4N Long. 110 54.6W
    Weather: Sunny day with low clouds. N 8-10 kts wind; Seas 1-3 ft NNE , Water Temp 26C. Visibility 50-60 ft


    Yesterday at the Boiler we had a great lst dive of the day. A big chevron Manta was waiting for the divers and stayed with them for the whole dive. As soon as divers jump in the water there was this manta, and when they came out the manta was still there. Smiles and laughs was all at the end of the day.
    First dive today was kind of challenging as there was a strong current to the north and visibility was poor around 20-30 ft. Divers saw 3 Mantas, one of the groups was lucky as when they jump in the water they stayed in the same place with one Black Manta for the whole dive.
    On the second dive, current decreased and direction changed to the East, visibility increased 50-60 ft and there was no Manta, but instead of Manta there was a school of 30 hammerheads and 5 dolphins that spent some time with the divers.
    Looking for one more dive before going to the Navy Base.

    Anchored at the Canyon San Benedicto Island. Sunny skies East wind 10 knots, West groundswell 3-4′, and fairly strong westerly current.The diving today has been Fantastic. We started out with a drift off the back of the boat through the Fondedero, with lots of Manta action. The second dive was out to the cleaning station and the Hammerheads were everywhere. More mantas and even a Tiger shark.

    We arrived this morning to the Boiler and it is just for us, there were no other boats here. The first dive has been the best of the day. As soon as the divers were in the water, 6 dolphins arrived to play with them. There was one Chevron Manta as well for the most part of the dive, some whitetip reef sharks and some silky sharks, the dive was nice. For the second dive, there was only one Manta swimming a bit deep. Two more dives to go!

    Yesterday we finished in the canyon with really good dives. We saw tiger sharks and a lot of silvertips, Galapagos and Hammerhead sharks. Our divers were really happy yesterday. Today we arrived at Roca Partida around 6AM and there were no other boats so we had Roca Partida for ourselves. The first dive was good and the animal action was good too. There were some Hammerheads, Silvertips and Galapagos sharks and two small chevron mantas. The second dive was much better, there were a lot of tunas and wahoos, galapagos and silvertip sharks and one whale shark. It was a super friendly whale shark they said.

    Today we started with the first dive at Fondeadero, it was the check dive and it was good. Some of ours divers could see two mantas, one black manta, one more chevron manta, one galapagos shark and one diver could see a tiger shark in the distance. The second dive was much better, the action was super good in the canyon! There were a lot of hammerheads, 80 or more circling the area all the time! One group could see 3 different tiger sharks and the rest could see just one big tiger shark. There were a lot of silvertips in the cleaning station and some galapagos. Lets see what else we can find on the third and last dive.

    Second day at Roca Partida, the weather is better than yesterday morning, but still a bit windy. We have one dive done and second one about to finish. The first dive was great, mostly same action as yesterday lot of sharks, whitetip reef, galapagos, silvertips and silkies, schools of bonitos, jacks and tunas. But, the star of the show was a HUGE female whale shark swimming around the rock. Everyone was astonished to see the huge creature and everyone returned back to the boat super happy. Looking forward to a great day and great dives. We will depart tonight to the boiler for dives tomorrow there.
