Location: Joubertsdam
Water Temperature: 18.2’C
Depth:  11M
Visibility: 2.0m + 2.0 M
Number of Sharks: 12+7
Conditions: Sunny skies with a light wind and slow, small swells.

Our first trip started with a bang with the sharks waiting for us as soon as we drop anchor, so our divers just needed to jump into their wetsuits. The activity was amazing almost like our winter season. The majority of the sharks were 3.5 m and over, with our largest approximately 4.2m in length! We also had a visit from two satellite tagged sharks, one that has lost the tag but attachment site can still be seen. This individual also had an accoustic tag attached, however it was not one that Marine Dynamics had deployed. The action got a little quiet after our fourth cage, however, we can call it a overall great trip! The second trip went out and the sharks were there immediately, we got to see seven different sharks and a big short tailed stingray! The visibility was really good and we were really lucky as the visibility sometimes goes down a bit during the summer! Very nice to see some young divers in our cage today!

Thank you all for an amazing day in the shallows.
