The first trip of the day saw some choppy seas and fairly high winds, but even the bad weather conditions couldn’t put our sharks off! Four sharks made passes by the boat throughout the morning, including a familiar shark named “Little Nemo”. We were even visited by a Cape Fur Seal briefly! Numerous slow, steady passes around the cage and the boat kept our guests happy with some great views of our majestic Great Whites! The afternoon trip was an exclusive for the Jones and Kemble Families from the USA. Whilst the conditions had worsened as the day went on it had no effect on the sharks and we were lucky enough to see three individuals including a very active large female, approximately 3.8m in length and very interested in coming to the surface and close to the cage for our divers to see her pearly whites! A wild, windy and wonderful day out on the water…
