The Sharks Return

A humpback whale breaching in False Bay, Cape Town

Posted on Thursday, 11 June 2015

After a long period of no shark sightings at Seal Island, we are happy to report consistent sightings over the last 7 days. Whoop! I think we can safely say they are back for the remainder of the season. One of our trips on a chilly wintery morning this week saw a couple of predations upon arrival at Seal Island. The kelp gulls scavenging were our only indicator to an event having just occurred. We were all focused in the directions of the kills when suddenly, 150 metres away, a Humpback Whale breached fully out of the water. Guests were ecstatic as cameras clicked away! The grand finale was when the whale did a second breach while our guests continued to watch in excitement. To top it, we had 2 great white sharks that interacted around our vessel making cage diving for all the guests possible even though the viz was not more than 2 metres. One of these sharks, a 2.2.metre male is becoming a regular, having seen him for the past 4 days.
