Daily trip 19 March 2012
Guest comment: “Thank you so much for the informative and most awesome boat trip ever! It is such a great privilege to see such a magnificent animal in our waters in South Africa!” Gianni and Angenita Giannoccavo.
Water Temperature: 16.6'C
Number of Sharks: 6
Conditions: Overcast and poor visibility.
Today the visibility in the Dam was less than desirable; however the sharks were on the scene very quickly! We had several sharks today, ranging in length between 2 and 3 meters. The larger sharks seemed to be preoccupied somewhere else. Most likely taking care of a couple of seals who wondered to far of course. We had a great treat today when a couple of hagfish were swimming in front of the cage. These fish are known locally as the “snot slang”, due to the fact that they secrete large amounts of slime when captured. That was a real treat for everyone on board. All and all it was a great day, with no Monday blues...
