“Thanks so much it was an amazing experience!” – Barbara


Location:  Joubertsdam
Water Temperature:



Number of Sharks: 13
Conditions:  A Beautiful day with lots of sunshine and no wind

Today was an amazing day from start till end. The weather was perfect with lots of sunshine and almost no wind. On our way to Joubertsdam we spotted a pod of Common dolphins so we moved a little bit closer. The dolphins swam up to the boat and seemed to enjoy the waves that it created. The pod consisted of 40 to 50 individuals, including a mother and her baby. After spending 10 minutes with the dolphins we headed further towards our dive site and we were surprised to see hundreds of box jellyfish. We were not very fortunate at our first anchor so we moved locations and sharks started to show up quickly. We could see them coming from far as the visibility was incredible. Everyone managed to see lots of sharks from the cage but the view from the top deck was also amazing as we saw quite some breaches. We ended up seeing 13 different sharks varying in length from 2.6m to 4.3m.
