Straight to the shallows this morning for our sharks! We approached this morning and got our cage ready while our guests suited up into their wetsuits. We got a shark quickly this morning, so we got our divers in the cage and our first group got some fantastic sightings on this run. Our second group spent a little while in the water with a lull in the shark activity, but fear not the return of the cage dive quiz! We quizzed our divers on their shark knowledge, while trying to attract some shark with some of our best seal impressions! Soon after this we had copper sharks around the cage and got some nice sightings. Our final cage also got a few up close sightings with these awesome sharks, and with a boat full of happy divers we headed back in for our second trip.
For our second trip we once again headed to our dive site in The Shallows. The crew attached the cage to the side of the vessel and placed the boat on anchor. We waited for a short while before we were visited by a Copper sharks. Our divers climbed into the cage and were excited by the sight of the shark as it moved in front of the cage. Because the shark came up a few times during the trip, we decided to treated our guests to a view of Dyer Island and Geyser Rock, showing them the Cape Fur Seal colony, and getting a quick view of a lone African Penguin swimming around. Afterwards we headed back to shore, where our guests finished the trip with some nice soup and bread.
