Daily Trip 03 April 2012
Guest Comment: Fantastic, loads of sharks and huge too. Leanne and Graham Eusha, from the UK
Water Temperature: 16.6 'C
Number of Sharks: 9
Conditions: Calm, flat and clear!
The only worry with today’s trip was that the algal bloom which has been prominent in the bay may affect our visibility. Sea conditions were perfect with a slight breeze and no swell, unfortunately the bloom however remained and visibility was reduced. This had little to no effect on our trip as within five minuets the now giant ‘Woundy’ appeared. We’ve been seeing this shark since 2007 when she was less than 3 meters in length and have continued to be visted on and off for the past 5 years. She is now over 4 meters in length and completely dominated the first half of our trip. Rubbing alongside the cage as she passed and giving every person who entered the cage a jaw dropping, breathtaking experience. By the end of the trip many other sharks had arrived and we sighted at least 8 or 9 – possibly more. Fantastic stuff! Thank you very much to Paul Hubert of Paul Hubert Ltd (UK & Ireland) for adopting 2 white sharks, they will be tagged later this year.
