Today we woke up to a beautiful sunrise. The natural colors hitting the island making it turn in pale yellow, there was not a single cloud in the sky all day, we had a beautiful flat ocean, with no wind at all, air temp 26°C. As early as 6:40 we had the first visit of a 12ft long male coming back and frwd past the surface cages which mean our first diver in the water was at 7:00, minutes later we had the arrival of a juvenile male of about 9ft length. For a long time we only had these two sharks striking with power and speed at our bait on the surface. From the sun deck looking straight down gave our guests a great perspective to see how thick and long these beautiful animals are! They take their time to slowly swim just beneath the surface breaking it with the dorsal fin. For our last 3 hours we had 5 other sharks very active doing all type of things on the surface including passing so close they almost touched the cage. All our guests are ecstatic with the photos they are getting! We got some great cages shots with big wide open mouth that you can see though the opening of gills! The submersible cage offers another perspective to photograph the sharks, the shadow of the boat makes it look darker. When they weren't around the cages, the sharks spent a lot of time hiding beneath the boat, and sometimes you can see them from the submersible but not from our surface cages. For the last part of the day a large male, "CC" showed up and stayed until the end of the diving day! We had to break everything down before our journey home and even then the sharks continued to hang around the stern of the boat! Water temp is 69°F and a vis of about 110ft!
