      ... spotted. Its ironic as he is on his cell phone getting messages about where the whales were spotted while dressed as an old fashioned crier.
      We decided to get lunch before we went to see the whales but the sound of the horn was calling me. I ordered my lunch and then took a walk alone to the shore to see them. They are amazing, truly. The Right whales come to this bay to calf and care for their babies until they are ready to head out into the great big ocean.

      The team of Great White Shark Tours also did their own video and I knew I 'd look a complete geek on it as I had remembered saying it was "amazing" and "the shark looked right at me!" when the guy asked me how it was when I came out of the cage! Still, I got the video and I do look a geek but I can't wait to show it because it's a great memory of a top highlight of the whole trip.

(the females are actually the larger ones! Fun fact.) visibility started really high, we got a great show and despite ...

      ... watching the sharks instead. There were some good viewings from the boat, but I missed videoing some of them as I got too excited and hit the record button twice instead of just once.

This was the money dive as similar to yesterday one grabbed the bait line and swam right up to the cage where I got to look it in the eye as it had a mouth full of tuna head. It fought with ...

      So today we went great white shark cage diving off the coast of Gansbaai.  We took a boat for about 15 minutes to an area close to an island full of seals.  We anchored down, and the crew started throwing chum in the water.  They also had tuna heads on bobbers that they threw out.   Once sharks started coming we took turns getting into the cage.  A crew member would lure them close with the tuna heads. At one point the shark ...
