Fantastic trip with Rob and his unbelievable crew, 6.30 am start at Simon's town dock in the dark for a full briefing and run down of what lay ahead.
15 minutes later we were powering across the bay into the most awe inspiring sunrise we've ever seen towards seal island.
After dropping anchor and setting the cage up we were visited by some 7 Gill broad nose sharks, the view from inside the cage was unbelievable, the biggest of the sharks proceeded to give me a close encounter by pushing it's nose right against the bars whilst chomping it's breakfast!
A bit early in the season for Whites and I knew that when I booked so no complaints.
Brilliant cage set up, you have scuba tanks fixed on deck so you can breathe underwater for as long as you like, none of this "duck down now" nonsense with a snorkel that other companies do.
All gear provided, no training necessary.
The Crew, what can I say! Everybody is so professional, friendly and passionate about everything they do, particularly the ecological side of the job, preservation of sharks, the ocean and everything in and around it, absolutely faultless.
Heading back in we were visited by an arctic skua that had apparently adopted the boat! The bird followed the boat and took food from the crew's hand mid flight, my sister in law had a go and was delighted.
To sum it up, four and a half hour trip, jaw dropping scenery, seals porpoising all around, close cage encounter with big sharks, hand fed a flying bird, food, drinks and all equipment provided and an amazing team of guys to guide you through the day for slightly over £100! Don't even think about it, book now!
A huge thanks to all the guys on board, I did get your names but was so excited I forgot them all!
Hoping to come back later in the year to see the big fellas and wouldn't dream of using any other company.
