We headed out to a beautiful sunrise this morning. And as we prepped the cage and our divers we got copper sharks very quickly. So cue the divers and in they got. With these sharks they come very close to the cage so even in the slightly murky water this morning, our divers enjoyed face to face views with these magnificent sharks. All of our divers managed to grab excellent sightings underwater this morning, as well as observing them from the top deck of Slashfin! We finished off the trip with a bonus trip to the islands where we got nice and close to the seals and even saw a couple of penguins. After this we headed back to the harbour to collect our next set of divers.
For our second trip we headed once again back to our dive site in The Shallows. As our crew anchored Slashfin, a dark shadow of a white shark passed in the distance. Our guests received their wetsuits and soon we had our first visitors around the boat, a copper shark. Our divers climbed in the cage and soon we had both copper sharks and white sharks swimming around the cage. Even Clubtail came around for a brief visit. Towards the end of the trip a short-tailed stingray rose up from the deep. After the trip we briefly visited Dyer Island and Geyser Rock, showing our guests the local seal colony. Afterwards we headed back to shore where our guests finished the trip with some amazing soup and bread.
