Our trip had a bit of a late launch today due to the shifting of the tides, nonetheless we still made it out to our dive site! The wind was definitely prevalent on the water today, however we were very fortunate to have mild swell. A combination of strong winds and big swell would not have been pleasant for a first time sea farer, luckily the weather remained good for the shark sightings! We had loads of kelp gulls around the boat, skimming off some of our chum, they truly are like flies sometimes! The sharks were giving great passes but were reluctant to come up to the surface, making the taking of photos quite difficult. I still got my shots however….
