A beautiful day awaited us in the bay this morning as we launched and headed into the shallows for another day of White shark watching and diving! We had a little bit of a wait for the sharks to turn up today but it was a lovely day to be out on the boat relaxing in the sun. It seemed like the juveniles and sub-adults were to rule the trip with most of our visitors under the 3.5m mark, yet what they lacked in size they make up for in their fast and feisty behaviour. We also had a visit from one of our favourite females “Ingrid”, unfortunately she only passed once and kept very deep so those on board did not get a good look. Our largest and also one of our most active sharks of the day was an approximate 4.2m female with a white tip on her dorsal fin that helps us to recognise her. Many times on our trips, our visitors like to see the big sharks but it is usually the smaller ones that provide the activity, however today this large, lovely female proved just as active as the smaller ones around her! A sun and fun-filled day out on the water…
