    ... passed within touching distance of the cage. Near the end of this session, Ingrid, a large great white breached very close to the cage, giving everyone in the cage a rush of adrenalin.

    During the introduction to the tour we were informed that great white sharks are now becoming an endangered species, hunted by man namely for their dorsal fin (shark fin soup) and their jaws. Expecting some 1000 great whites in their area, only about 500 have been documented. ...

    ... toll. Therese is hanging over the side of the boat feeling ill and as a good friend, I try to go over to support her. However, as usual, plans rarely go as planned. Instead of comforting her, I begin to violently throw up over the side of the boat, which triggers Therese to do the same. She will never have orange juice again. By the end of the trip 17 out of 18 of us were sick. It was an awesome sight. At least we weren't as bad as our new friend George, pretty sure he ...

    ... over some decent-sized swells en route to the shark hangout at Dyer Island. The waters around Gansbaai is one of the best places in the world to see great white sharks. Due to preferred water temperature and conditions and an abundance of seals to eat, the highly migratory great white sharks keep returning to these bays, so there are almost always great whites to see, even in low season (which includes March). After dropping anchor, the boat crew chummed the water for a ...

    ... and had some interesting tastings... ostrich, crocodile, venison sausage, chicken, springbok, and warthog. Our unanimous favorite was...ostrich?? It was really good and we did not expect
    ostrich to taste like that.
