We set out on our 45 min ride to the actual site and made our way around Danger Point out to Seal Island. We managed to see a couple of whales while on our ride out. The ride out was fairly smooth (so our guide said). We dropped anchor and then crew began chumming the water.
We went through about 6 at a time in the cage which was about 9m long. We believe we had 3 distinct sharks pay us a visit. It was all timing as to how good a photo you got. They don't pause for you to get that right one. We had several small breaches and many swim by eatings. I took a few and some of the kids got better shots. A couple of them agreed to e-mail me some of the really good ones.
All in all... another great day. Had dinner at a little local place, Ciro's. Good food. Tomorrow is the drive to Cape Town.
