04/04/2012 Trip 1
Water Temperature: 16.2 'C
Number of Sharks: 10
Conditions: Calm and flat
Another excellent start to the trip courtesy of ‘Woundy’ I first saw this shark over 3 years ago with a large and freshly opened wound on her keel between the 2nd dorsal fin and tail in Mossel Bay, I joined Marine Dynamics later that year and low and behold here ‘Woundy’ was here in Gansbaai too. Three years on she is now massive, comfortably over 4 meters and still has her feisty temperament. After she left it was quite for a time before more and more sharks started to appear. One was very large – even bigger than ‘Woundy’ and ‘Bent Fin’ who’s around 4 meters. It’s such a privilege to work with these animals on a daily basis but it’s always special to see the big ones!
