It was a beautiful morning as we headed out to sea. We had barely left the harbour when our attention was drawn to some activity happening in the water. We checked it out and it turned out to be a pod of Common dolphins feasting on a small baitball. After taking a few photos, we carried on and soon arrived at our dive site. The cage went into the water and our guests climbed into their wetsuits. Soon the first Copper sharks arrived and our divers climbed into the cage. Later a pod of Indo-Pacific Humpback dolphins gave us a brief visit. A beautiful white shark topped the trip. On our way back we once again visited the bait ball that was still going on, before heading back to shore where our guests finished their trip with some fantastic soup and bread.
We started our second trip in quite overcast conditions but with some nice and calm waters. As soon as we reached our dive site the first visitors, Copper sharks, started to arrive. We had some rerally nice shark activity throughout the trip with even a short-tailed stingray coming to visit us a couple of times. Once everyone were happy and had their chance in the water, we headed back to the harbour to pick up our third and last group.
