An early start for Slashfin this morning as we headed to the Shallows! We arrived at our dive site and got our guests geared up into their wetsuits and didn’t have to wait long for our first shark. We had some nice activity from the copper sharks to start off with this morning, with them coming very close to the cage so our divers could get some nice shots of these awesome sharks. Our second group also enjoyed some super copper shark activity as well as a stingray and a seal! So we were triple S diving today! Our third group were the luckiest where the 2.5m male great white showed up for some very majestic passes by the cage. We finished out the trip with the copper sharks and then headed back into the harbour!
We started our second trip with lots of sunshine and a bit of wind coming from south east. Once we got to the dive site and started changing into the wetsuits a 2.5 m white shark appeared from the deep. Unfrotunately, he did not show up for the rest of the trip but we had some amazing copper shark activity throughout the whole trip with bronzies coming up really close to the cage letting our divers enjoy their beauty. We also were lucky enough to witness a stunning short-tailed stingray coming up to the surface.
