Sharks are friends not food!

Bronze whaler sharks are also known as copper sharks or in some places narrow tooth sharks are unfortunately still fished commercially and sold as fish and chips called ‘flake’ in places like Australia with many people having no clue that, that is actually what they are eating. We always try to show that these sharks are amazing animals and on this tour we made a point of it to stop and watch them twice. Of course we also saw some great seals and penguins and had a lovely cruise around our beautiful bay of Kleinbaai. We picked up some kelp and had a great time with the clients and their curious minds as we are always happy to engage and answer any questions as we believe Conservation goes hand in hand with Education! Thanks guys it was great having you on board!
