Conditions: Beautiful sunny day on a flat sea.
It was a beautiful morning as we headed out to sea. The sun was hot in the sky, and the sea incredibly flat after yesterday's storm. It took quite a while for the copper sharks to arrive. While we waited a Cape fur seal came around briefly and entertained our guests. After a while the Copper sharks finally arrived and all our divers got to see them underwater.
For our second trip, we didn't have to wait as long to get sharky as the copper sharks joined us pretty quickly! We only had a small group on this trip so everyone made the most of their time in the cage with a few eager divers getting back in the cage! The copper shark activity was a little slow to begin with but soon picked up and we had a lot of very close passes by the cage, with our infamous visibility that allowed our guests to get some supreme sightings of these sharks. As our divers climbed out of the cage we slowly began to clean up and get the cage onto the back of Slashfin! As we left our anchor site, what appeared to be a purple compass jellyfish was basking in the afternoon sunshine. After checking this guy out we bagan a nice cruise through the Shallows back to the harbour!
