Trip Summary: Even today we collected many incredible emotions going out with our boat “Slashfin”! Just after a few minutes after we anchored to our diving spot “The Shallow”, many copper sharks began to surround the boat, curious and inquisitive. Checking the cage very closely, they showed all their beauty, leaving our divers amazed by their size and elegance! Our divers had the opportunity to admire up close not only the sharks but also a very curious Cape Fur Seal, which in search of food swam quickly in front of all performing with turns and jumps. Seabirds were also not missing today from the list of marine animals we sighted: many sub-Antartict skuas joined us on the ride to the diving spot as well as back to the harbor! What a beautiful sunny day in the ocean! Thanks to everyone for being a part of it!
