No much of a wait this morning with a juvenile female making its way to investigate within 20 minutes of anchoring. Her arrival got things rolling as new individuals continued to make their way in throughout the trip. Who should turn up at the end of the trip other than our lovely “Rosie”, the acoustically tagged 3.8m female who has a habit of stealing the show! The second trip of the day started off well and while we didn’t have as great visibility as the morning trip some of our “fishy” visitors took it upon themselves to come closer so we could take a better look! The majority of this trip was made up of juvenile female Great Whites, we did however have “Sellendilloh” visit, the only male to be seen during this trip and we also had a close to 4.0m adult turn up as our last shark of the day. A big thank you to all those that joined us today…
