Our first trip started out with a shark sighting after only 20 minutes. After an initial flurry of action, the rest of the trip was significantly slower. We were quite fortunate to see four different sharks. However, the last two observations were only at the front of the boat and the sharks did not stay around. A big thank you to our Italian friends who were with us this week! We were quite happy to yell “squalo” throughout your time with us. Looking forward to your future visits!
The second trip had to show a little more persistence to get a shark. We were anchored for well over 2 hours before catching our first glimpse of a shark. It was the same small juvenile female that we have seen the past couple of days. Everyone was quite relieved that the wait was finally over. Towards the end of the trip we had a quick peek at a bigger shark, but sadly that individual did not stick around long enough for everyone to have a proper look. Thank you to everyone for your patience throughout the day. We have the best clients in the world!
