Our boat today had one extra passenger on board; a small turtle which was found stranded on the beach was hitching a ride with us. We were going to return him to his natural environment, the open ocean! After releasing him we carried on towards Shark Alley and towards our cage deployment site. We had a phenomenal day with heaps of shark activity and even some birds with the odd suicidal tendency! A juvenile Cape Gannet barely made it out of the jaws of one shark, but it decided to return and try its luck again. This bird escaped several times and kept coming back! We had several massive sharks today with the biggest being around the 4.5 meter mark, she was massive! Even though some of our clients were suffering from some ‘motion distresses, all of them enjoyed the sharks. Well done guys…
