We headed out towards the shallows dropped our anchor and got our clients into the wetsuits. The sharks did not show up immediately and we waited for a little bit but then two sharks showed up. One of them a 2.5 meter shark gave some really nice passing’s in front of our cage and divers. After a little while a 4 meter shark came up and bit off the line to the decoy luckily we had a new one in the water after some seconds. In the end of our trip a shark named “Mini-Nemo” showed up who has a shortened right pectoral fin. In total five different sharks were spotted around Slashfin today, very fun to have two birthday gentlemen on the boat today so from us at marine dynamics we wish you happy birthday!

Thank you all for an amazing day in the shallows!
