The ship was in large swells most of the day, running 15-20 feet with the occasional 22+ footer. During the late afternoon into evening, the seas started to lie down and we were able to get a small survey of Don Quixote Seamount on the way to the next dive site. We are optimistic about a dive on Wednesday.
