A lekker day!

Another brilliant day with lekker weather and lekker sharks! We launched early this morning for a trip with our volunteers. They all got a chance to dive as they’ve been helping us out a lot the last few days, thanks guys. We launched at 9 for another trip and headed back to the Geldsteen and before we got on anchor the first shark was circling around the boat. It was a 3.4m male. The 2nd shark that showed up was a shark that we have been seeing quite a bit lately. The first time we spotted him was in Shark Alley but we’ve see him at the Geldsteen as well now. The shark is about 2.5m in length and has a bite mark on its left flank in between the dorsal fin and the gills. The shark was very active yesterday, today he was a bit more relaxed. Another familiar shark we spotted was Little lumpy! A 3.1m female Great White. We launched at 1pm for our third trip and we spotted a Great White chasing down a Cape Fur seal in the distance! We don’t believe that the shark caught the seal as the birds left the scene after it got calm. Usually they stick around to feed on leftovers that the shark leaves behind. We spotted a total of 9 different sharks varying in size from 3m to 4.2m! 

If you are looking to get up close and personal with the great white shark then Cage Diving in South Africa, and more specifically with Marine Dynamics, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience you won’t want to miss.
