Thank you to everyone for joining us on New Year’s Eve!  I can’t think of a better way to spend the final day of 2015 than with great white sharks.  We were fortunate to have some great sharks on all 3 trips today.  “Split Fin” made an appearance on all the trips.  He has become a crowd favorite this past week with his slow and calm movements right in front of the cage.  We were also fortunate to have “Mandy” visit us.  She is a shark we have known for several years.  It’s always nice to know that they have survived another year and returned to our little bay.

For those on the third trip, we also got to get a glimpse of the wedding party on our sister boat ‘Dreamcatcher’.  A big Congratulations to Francois and Sarah!!  What a wonderful couple and everyone at Marine Dynamics wishes you well as you start your life together.

Thanks to all of our clients who have joined us in 2015!  It has been a special year with amazing people from all over the world.  Please join us again if you get the chance – the sharks miss you already.

Here’s to a very Happy 2016!!
