After rolling over the waves this morning, it turned into an amazing trip out to sea. There was a bit of a swell out today, so our divers climbed into their wetsuits on land, but this did not deter us as we headed out to sea. We had barely arrived when the first Copper sharks arrived. Our divers quickly went into the cage and witnessed the sharks coming by again and again. Not too much later a small white shark reared her head up. She was soon followed by Clubtail, who really showed off for our divers before a whopping 5m white shark reared her head around and really gave our divers in the cage a show. The sighting of a short-tailed stingray finished off the trip before we made our way back to shore.
