A Great White Encounter (Part 2)

For those who didn't see my first post (A Great White Encounter), I've been lucky enough to land a job volunteering with African Shark Eco-Charters for a couple of weeks. They're a Great White shark cage diving / breaching tour operating out of Simons Town. We went out both days this past weekend but yesterday was the best trip by far. We had a 5m Great White Shark breach out of the water on a natural predation about 20m from the boat, and had at least 5 big sharks up at the cage. On our way back we were greeted by a pod of about 200 dolphins swimming alongside us and in the boat wake. It was the most incredible moment. We ended the day after sighting a Bryde's Whale... our oceans never cease to amaze me. I feel very blessed to live in Cape Town after this weekend.
