An early wakeup call greeted our drivers this morning as we hoped to get our trips done before some bad weather came in during the afternoon. The morning conditions were at first a little cold yet fantastic with flat seas and little wind. The first shark arrived quickly to the boat and for most of the trip the shark activity was good, however towards the end of the morning the sharks became scarce and some slow activity was witnessed! The second trip of the day started off well with a little bit of wind and chop when we anchored, yet the conditions changed quite quickly and we saw an increase in the wind and swell however this different deter our divers onboard nor did it deter the sharks! Within half an hour we had our first shark arrive, one that we have seen around the boat before, who has a distinctive bite mark in front of her gills on the left side. A smaller juvenile provided some extra excitement half way through the trip with sneaky attempts on the decoy and bait line. Our largest shark of the day was seen during the afternoon, a female measuring approximately 3.7m in length, she made numerous close passes by the cage wowing both the divers in the cage and also those onboard. A great start to the week…
