This morning’s group was met with overcast skies , yet the seas and winds were relatively low as we headed to the shallows. Some days we can have a bit of a wait for the sharks to arrive, however this was not the case this morning with sharks arriving within 20 minutes of anchoring! We had a few of our current regulars around the boat including “Pieter” and also a few new comers that we are not so familiar with. We had one of the friendly Short-tailed stingrays pop up for a hello this morning as well. The second trip of the day started off as good as it could with a White shark spotted as we arrived back into our anchor area. This was a juvenile female who in the end spent most of the trip around us. We were also lucky on this trip to have a 4.0m and a 4.2m shark show up and impress all on board. A fantastic day out in the bay…
