We were treated to some of the best shark experiences yesterday afternoon. Up to five sharks were weaving themselves around one another at the surface and at the submersible cages. It seems as though the sharks start to liven up as the sun comes out. Mid morning until the close of the cage in the afternoon was complete excitement. Because of the time of year, the younger generation of explorers that have come out with their parents to have an experience of a life time. The parents are just as anxious as the kids to hop in the cages to see the large number of sharks around the newly improved Explorer. Today we have had consistently two to three sharks. Two large males , one being Silent Hunter and some smaller sharks keep their distance from the more dominant males. The wranglers have been doing a fine job of bringing in the sharks and keeping them coming around our surface cages. We are surrounded by apex predators but still we have seen several large green sea turtles and a large pod of dolphins that raced between the rocky shore filled with seals and the boat. The diversity of this area is rich with sea life. The visibility is improving and our camera toting guests have been getting some amazing photos both in the submersible and surface cages. The boat is a buzz with happy divers. Some finding time to lounge in our spacious hot tub or relaxing while catching some sun on our comfortable lounge chair on the sun deck.
