This morning we headed to the shallows for our sharks! And with the sun climbing and the heat increasing, we got our divers ready for a dip in the cool Atlantic! Our first sharks arrived pretty quickly this morning, with some nice activity and a couple of very close passes for our first cage. The murky water this morning really did help the copper sharks blend in as they dove down from the surface. For our second cage the activity came and went but towards the end of their turn the activity increased and persisted for the final group. We had some marvellous sightings today and had a very happy group of divers so with that we headed back in!!
In the afternoon we once again headed to our dive site. We quickly got our guests into their wetsuits and as soon as the first shark arrived, they climbed into the cage. Our divers were thrilled as the sharks swam close by the cage, allowing them to see how absolutely beautiful the sharks are. Several sharks visited our cage, and our guests had an amazing time out at sea.
