Today has been a great morning, much better than yesterday. We have seen around 8 different sharks this morning, 5 Males and 3 females. The known sharks are Geoff Nuttal and Sad Face, both of them have been around everyday on this trip. This early morning we had a large female breaching fast and taking the tuna from the wranglers. There is other female smaller, 10-12 ft long that has been constantly around, swimming super fast to take the tuna and passing close to the cages. Cages are full right now, all are at the surface. We have seen yellow-fin tunas chasing a school of sardines. Everyone is having a great day.
