As soon as we arrived at the island, we dropped the cages, connected all hoses and left everything all ready for our first day of diving. All of the operation was supervised under the watchful eye of the most curious guests while the others were in the dinning area starting dinner time. As all the first dive days, guests woke up around 5:45 am to see all the preparations of the dive deck and tuna. At 6:30 am, everyone was ready and the first divers were in the water and…. at 6:45 AMAZIIING!! The first shark was showing his teeth at the surface trying to steal our tuna!!! 1 breach and 4/5 sharks are close to the cages. In the submersible cages was another story: 2 big females (not Lucy unfortunately…) are swimming around with their army of pilot fish. When the big girls arrived the rest of the sharks are swimming away fast.. looks like they know who the boss is! On the other hand, 2 junior males are here and then 4 different sharks in the submersible cages. Absolutely good beginning for this trip!!
