Trip Summaries:

Trip 1.

A wet start to the trip with our guests braving the rain as we launched, however, the conditions on the sea was fantastic and we had our first shark appear within moments of anchoring. This was a small female Bronze whaler shark and not too far behind her was another, this continued throughout the trip as more and more sharks appeared and we had very much consistent sightings throughout the morning as well as close passes by the cage and lovely views from the boat. A big thank you to all our guests that joined us this morning, we hope you enjoyed your time at sea with the Marine Dynamics team!

Trip 2.

It was a rainy and gray start to our day! But what an excitited group of divers it was!! As soon as we anchored in the Shallows the first Bronze whaler shark appeared! we had to wait a few minutes for the activity to pick up, but after that, the Bronze whaler shark was everywhere! We also had a big male Cape fur seal around the boat, and cape cormorants were flying all over us and showing some wildlife activity in the bay! Overall a great trip with beautiful visibility and wildlife sightings!
