This morning we left the harbour a little bit later than usual, but quickly made our way to our dive site, moving across a flat sea. Once we arrived, we dropped the cage in the water, and our divers got into their wetsuits. The copper sharks arrived quickly and the guests were excited to see them in their full beauty. As our guests viewed these beautiful sharks underwater, a Cape fur seal from Geyser Rock visited us, and hung around Slashfin for a while. The clouds started to pass away, and in turned into a beautiful day. Once we headed back we slowly passed a Southern right whale tale-slapping.
For our second trip we headed back to our dive site once more, but were met with a surprise once we arrived. The whale we saw on our way out during the first trip, was waiting for us next to the cage when we arrived. Our guests were excited as they took some quick photos. Afterwards they jumped into their wetsuits, and immediately the copper sharks arrived. Our divers got into the water and cheers rose from the cage as the copper sharks kept closely passing by our guests. Overall we had an amazing trip, and when we headed back, we passed through a flock of Cape Cormorants passing through the bay.
