The smallest shark of the day was definitely the fiercest and feistiest of the lot. The very instance this shark saw the bait line it jumped out of the water in hot pursuit. All you could see was a tail flapping like crazy in between a spray of water. Towards the end of the trip a few of the larger sharks showed up and gave a few up close and personal passes by the cage to everyone’s delight! This all took place after the sharks kept us waiting quite a while before they showed up on the scene. Well worth the wait I would say. Awesome day out…
