Daily Trip 29 April 2012 | Shark Diving in Gansbaai
Location: Shark Alley
Water Temperature: 14 'C
Number of Sharks: 4
Conditions: overcast and slightly choppy.
Winter is well on it's way and we headed out to Dyer Island in anticipation of seeing large sharks in Shark Alley. We were rewarded with a large and fairly agressive male in the opening half hour of our trip. You could clearly see his well definied claspers, a good indication that he is a mature male. After several quick passes and one or two lunges at the bait he moved on in search of bigger rewards for his curiousity - the seals of Geyser Rock better have been prepared! We next had a more relaxed sub-adult, just over 2.5m in length come to investigate us. We were lucky to have this shark stay with us for the rest of the trip and each of our divers got time in the cage with this young shark. Finally two of the larger sharks of Dyer Island came to visit. Both were around 4 meters and spent a few minuets with us before heading back to Geyser Rock in search of seal prey.
