It’s nice to have the sun beating down on our faces. The light underwater is amazing. The sun rays pierce the water sending beams of dancing light shards through the liquid medium. We have had an early shark come up to the surface in the morning and then when the cages were lowered to depth we had one big female lurking and coming into our waiting baits. There is a new shark that we haven’t seen. A female, medium in size with the lower portion of her tail is missing. We had a good frenzy at the surface with two sharks racing at the baits. Right after the action calmed there was a duck that waddled in just behind the baits. With a minute we could see the shadow of a sharks finding a path to the bobbing duck. The shark opened it’s mouth and the shark missed the duck. With the duck stunned the shark came by again and the duck vanished under the surface. Four seconds later the duck came to the surface and the shark went on it’s way. All guests, crew & duck happy.
