On a shark cage trip Wednesday morning in the area between Kleinbaai and Die Gruis – known by residents as Joubert se Dam, Supreme Sharks skipper, Frank Rutzen and videographer, Jurie Smal, saw an unuasual tail breaking the water surface.
Being experts at identifying the tails of, especially seals and whales, the difference was noted immediately.
On closer inspection and to their great surprise, two Orcass appeared.
Orcas have been spotted before on the ocean side of Dyer Island but this is the first time that somebody spotted Orcas in the bay.
According to Jurie Smal, the crew was more excited than their clients!
Jurie described the morning of 8 February as amazing, exciting….. and awesome!
