We have now identified over 300 individual white sharks in the bay that we dive in. And most astonishing of all, we had trips with 3 dive days in which we saw over 50 different great whites.
Many large sharks, the big females, are starting to arrive, with several individuals at 13ft plus and some as large as 15ft!
Sometimes the bait would hit the water and instantly be attacked just to be thrown out again and immediately another strike, just passing and passing inches from the cages.
To be face to face with Earth’s apex predator cannot be described in words.
We had 8 or 9 different sharks (the maximum count at once was 6!), with at least three females and many males.
The sharks were going crazy! All day long we saw sharks shooting up to try to steal the bait from our wranglers.
We had up to 8 sharks at a time, so many that it was hard to decide which way to look.
