We were back on the water today after a day off due to bad weather conditions and it seemed to be that the sharks had missed us just as much as we had missed them! On both trips we only had to wait approximately 15 minutes to see our first sharks. Our morning dive saw sharks a tad bit on the shy side, staying under the water’s surface whilst our afternoon trip had sharks “flying” in from the get go! We had a mix of males and females today, which we have been seeing recently since moving our diving to the Island, usually when diving in the shallows (all other months of the year excluding Winter months) we tend to see a lot of females for reasons still unknown. The largest shark of the day was a 4.2m female seen on both trips. We had another very interesting visitor to the boat on the second trip, an Albatross! The Albatross, one of the largest flying birds known, flew in very close to the boat giving everyone a good look and a chance to snap a photo. A great day back on the water…
