Yesterday evening medium/strong winds from the NW/N blowing and we had to cancel our taco night in sundeck. Anyway we enjoyed the best tacos ever in the dinning area and guests are happy as well! Shark ID was conducted by Jessy and had high expectations. Cocktail hour started more or less at the same time. The crew was preparing beer buckets and a few gin tonics for the guests. Windy night with few strong gusts but the Explorer is doing well. Morning in surface cages was slow. We haven’t lost any bait yet! Sharks are coming to the bait a few times but are trying only once and then going deep again. Wranglers are working hard but for the moment looks like sharks are in deep waters. In the submersible cages we have 3 or 4 sharks swimming around (some moments they were captured in the same shot). We haven’t identified any of these sharks yet.
