Day 18 - A monster sea battle with Bruce.

A travel blog entry by adamsmally


... horizon to focus on. Instead we went about 15 minutes out to another spot. Here they started the chum line...watery fish guts, loaded the cage into the water. And waited. Waited for about 30 minutes. I was felling very sea sick but managing to cope. We saw one small 1.5m shark in that time but it paid no interest to us. Then, suddenly, a big 3.5m bugger comes along. The first 8 jumped in the cage. I ducked out of the first load. I wanted to see the drill first. I won't go ...

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 jumped out of ...

... They met, he stayed and they later got married. They are an interesting couple, both love nature and the outdoors and they share my love for photography. Next month they are moving to Mozambique where they will both work at the Goronzola Nature Reserve. They are excited to have this opportunity.

Later after it's cooler I walk down to the water....just a short walk from their place and find a beautiful rock lined cove with waves pounding. There are ...
