    Tourists or shark bait

    ... loaded into the cage (I think as further bait). I wasn't in the first group (and Vivian didn't want to get into the water and became the official photographer) so we waited for the shark(s) to arrive. It wasn't a very long wait before the first shark showed up (the jaws picture I was able to get was of the first shark) and the excitement began. The shark entertained the first group of caged tourists (or perhaps we entertained the shark) for about half an hour and ...

    ... way over to get out of the tank, it became quickly evident that this, like rowing, is not an activity for short people. Therese finds herself precariously perched on top of the tank. One large wave and bye-bye, she will become the delicious lunch to a shark. Luckily, the guide was able to lift her up into the boat without incident. At last, we are "safely" back aboard the ship that at this point is feeling it is about to capsize from the waves crashing into us. Now our ...

    ... It was the water, and how cold the water was going to be given it's winter here. OK I know, not real winter but still... Those who know me know that I'm a complete wuss when it comes to water and the cold so that was the challenge for me.

    But the big day was booked, it was due to be a nice clear day and I was going for it and so excited. It was an early pick up from the city and we took the 2 hour drive to Gansbaai to the lodge for our ...

    ... amazing! Seeing those majestic creatures from under the water, passing so close to the cage. And water visibility was great, which made it even better experience. Although was freezing cold, even wearing 7,5mm thick wetsuit together with the boots and a hood. I went again into the cage right at the end of the session, watching another shark, this time the one approached the boat was bit smaller, about 2,5m. Fantastic ...

    ... br> March is not whale season in Gansbaai, but apparently the Bryde's whale can be spotted year-round. In fact, the area surrounding Gansbaai is known as the best land-based whale-watching destination. Sure enough, as we were drinking our wine and watching the sun lower on the horizon, we saw a whale surface not very far from shore. We continued to watch him periodically surface for the next 10 minutes, marking his progress across the bay. Eventually, he disappeared from ...
