Trip comments: 

We headed out of the harbor with dark clouds above however within the hour these had cleared to a perfect day. The wait for our sharks to arrive this morning was a long one but as we say be patient and you won’t be disappointed! Whilst we had a number of juveniles show up, they did not stick around for long. The action truly heated up with the arrival of a 4.2m male exhibiting some of the best behavior we can hope for, slowly approaching the cage, spy-hopping and jaws agape. This individual stuck with us for the rest of the trip and was the highlight of the morning. The afternoon saw the return of “Jacob” a juvinile Great White known for it’s active displays around the boat. A great way to finish the day…

 Thank you all for an amazing day in the shallows!
