Day 30 - Jonah(s) and NO Whale.............Nearly

A travel blog entry by simonannals


... there must have been at least 15 - 20 whales in total and always at least 4 on the surface at any one time. Have I got some great photos, probably not, it is so hard to predict when they are about to breach or stick their tails in the air! As the sun slowly disappeared over the horizon, we drove back to the guest house, dumped the car and had dinner in the restaurant opposite. On the ceiling of the restaurant was a huge whale skeleton and ...

Jaws Right in Front of Me

... line a bit and then turned around and swam the other direction (see video 2). This was the end of the cage diving for day two so we headed back in and had lunch again then I went back to the B&B and relaxed in the hot tub then showered off. The car started up no problem this time, I am pretty much a mini south african hyundai expert at this point. After taking a shower I again passed out and woke up early the next day but then went back to bed until about 6 am.

The day started at 3am - to get ready for my really early pick up ride to Gansbaai. After the long ride we arrived at 6am and were ready to get on the boat by 6:30am. We went down climbed on our boat "The Barracuda" and backed into the water. One of the propellers failed. So we got of the boat and went back inside. They took us on ...

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life..

A travel blog entry by beccablack2012


... I was on the boat that a shark breached (jumped right out of the water to grab the bait) and it was literally like something off the Discovery Channel. Mike got an amazing picture that I shall be stealing for my album when I get home. My only complaint is that, for no apparent reason about 2 minutes before we got out the cage the skippers emptied about 20kg of rotten fish into the water so we were just surrounded by it. All who know me well know I can't stand cooked ...
