We are on our 14th trip of our 2015 great white season, just two trips left before we head back to the Socorro Islands!
We are on our 14th trip of our 2015 great white season, just two trips left before we head back to the Socorro Islands! But first, let me tell you how the trip went...
To start we left with great weather which gave us nice smooth crossing to the island, by 9:20 am we already had the bait in the water! About an hour later, the first great white showed up! A few minutes later, a second shark showed up! We had arm water at the surface, 74F/23.3C, the action kept going with these two males that were 10-12'/3-4m were very feisty and gave a great show! They did some partial breaches and quick turns, the submersible cage was busy, when the sharks weren't at the surface cages they were circling our submersible cage a bit deeper! The submersible was a great place to be all day long to get another perspective on the great whites!
Our last day of diving we moved to a different dive site, as the visibility was not that great at the dive site from our first two days. At the second site, we had similar conditions with lower visibility than usual, but after a bit we spotted our old friend Bruce aka Zapata! He's a massive great white we've that always puts on a good show, he stayed around the cages for nearly an hour, especially around the submersible cages!
For the last part of the day, we had another 10' male that came to the boat, and stayed for the last hour, a very agile shark that made quick and sharp turns around the cages! It was a good way to end the diving activities!
On the way back we again found a great weather and made it back safely to Ensenada and now we are ready for our 15th trip! So stay tuned because there is more action coming our way!
