Wakey wakey…an early start greeted our first trip for today! It looks like the sharks were up nice and early as well with the first shark spotted only 10 minutes after arrival , a male individual just under the 4.0m length, a great start to any trip. The activity continued with new individuals showing up every 10 minutes or so. The animals from this trip included some of our well known sharks including “Ingrid”, “Little Rosie” and “Rosie”. The second trip of the day had similar luck with the sharks being around pretty much from the get go however this trip saw a much more relaxed behaviour from the animals , “Ingrid” however still put on a show and arrived towards the end of the trip to end it with a bang! The third and final trip of the day was an exclusive for two friends visiting from American. One had seen White Sharks before yet had never been in the water with them whilst for the other it was a first time encounter! We had some great activity from “Rosie” who seemed to feel it was her duty to give the guys an up close and personal view of a White Shark and we all know that there is no better shark to do so than “Rosie”! A GREAT day spent out in the bay…
