Guide Summary and Photographs
Walking down to the harbour this morning it was awesome to see clients of almost every age, from a seven month old baby to a 93 year old “gogo”. This just goes to show that there is no age restriction when it comes to new experiences and appreciating our amazing natural world.
It was a beautiful, sunny day out today, although the wind made for a chilly trip. We hugged the coast for the first leg of our journey in search of our Humpback dolphins. We found them quite far along the coast line playing in the breakers. The dolphins were at a depth of less than two metres today which is very shallow but, luckily they came a little closer for us to get a good look at them. The pod swam in a tightly packed formation with the beautiful, sandy beaches as a backdrop which made for an awesome sight.
The visibility at the shark cage diving vessels was exceptional today and we were able to see numerous sharks through the crystal clear water. Alison, our shark biologist managed to identify 14 different sharks including Rosie, a very large female that frequents our waters. While we were there, Rosie seemed un-phased by the bait but we were still able to view her in her full splendour.
Geyser Rock is still unusually empty although with the smell, you would assume that they are all still on the island. The island was a hive of activity with the birds almost swarming. Overall, an great day on the sea.
