The sharks must have heard their alarm go off this morning as we had no wait time before the first one was circling us.  The sharks had us all believing they had wings today, as they were flying in the air from every direction.  “Malcolm X” joined us again today, starting the jumping show off and was rivalled only by a shark that we’ve been seeing for the past few days who has a significant bite wound on her right cheek.  Both trips had sharks in the double digits today but the largest shark of the day was seen on our second trip and was an impressive 4.5m.  It was a beautiful day for divers to check cage diving off their bucket list… – Helen
