Our first trip of the day left from Gansbaai harbour and was treated to the appearance of a Southern Right Whale on our way past Danger Point. Once getting to the dive site in the shallows a quick appearance by our first white shark had us hurrying to fill our cage. After a couple passes however the shark swam off, and we had a bit of a wait for the second and final shark of the day, whom was more active and gave our clients some fantastic passes in front the cage. This afternoons trip started off slower seeing us re-anchor two times before hitting the jackpot! We were lucky enough to have a shark instantly as we anchored for the last time and whilst it was a small juvenile it was very active and stuck around the boat for the rest of the trip. We also spotted two other juveniles who were also very interested in sticking around for an investigation of our boat and what was on it! A lucky day for our divers…
