It was a beautiful morning as we headed out to sea. We arrived at our dive-site, quickly put the cage in the water, and our divers climbed into their wetsuits. We waited a brief moment before relocating. Good thing we relocated, because as soon as we arrived at our new site, the white sharks started to arrive. It turned into an amazing trip as one shark after another showed up. We had several small sharks visit us, and well known ones such as White 'n Bite, Clubtail and Mini-Nemo. We were briefly visited by a few copper sharks, and a Cape fur seal, but they disappeared quickly amongst the fantastic shark activity.
For our second trip, it was straight back to the shallows in search of sharks. And after around 15 minutes, we had our first shark. This 2.3m female, pale in colour with a dark patch on her left side gently cruised around the cage for a while giving our guests some spectacular views. Up next, we had a 2.5m female with dark scarring behind the dorsal on the left side, she was also pretty chiled this morning, cruising close to the cage and checking out our divers down there. Our third shark of the trip was a little larger and darker in colouration at 3m, this shark just had a couple of passes for us and also has a fish hook in the right side of the mouth. Our fourth shark was White and Bite the large >4m female, a little more active than our previous sharks with some stunning attempts on the decoy line. we had a quick pass by as 4m shark and then finally clubtail rocked up at the end to finish a stunning shark trip up!
