The action started early on our 2nd day of diving! At 6:40 we hear the call that ushers in excitement aboard the boat, "Shark!! Shark!!" We've got a beautiful sunrise happening and the sharks are ready for us to get in the water! Once our divers get in the water there were 3 hungry sharks waiting for us circling below the cages! These massive sharks launched their bodies partially out of the water trying to get the bait, and let us see those big white and sharp serrated teeth, others came at the bait with their mouths wide open just beneath the surface trying to get the food. By 9:30 we had another full body breach, less than 25' from the boat! The funny thing is, the guest that witnessed the breach from yesterday in the submersible cage, got to see a similar breach from a top down perspective. The submersible cage was going up and down all day, with 4 sharks around the cage all day long, and one BIG female came into the area that was very curious about our cages. On the surface, the curiosity turned into velocity in an effort to get the bait on several occasions. She also made several very close passes by both the submersible and surface cages, so close that you see every wrinkle of its body! Dolphins also wanted some attention, they stopped by to say hello around lunch time, passing right by our cages. Towards the end of the day, the action picked up, but as the sun went down so did our visibility, those on the surface or watching from the sundeck witnessed another 3/4 of body breach out of the water, around 120' from the Solmar V! Water temp on the surface was 73F dipping down to 71F in the submersible, with shark action all day long!
