After an early morning drive, we made it to Gansbaai, home of Shark Ally and the highest concentration of Great White sharks in the world.  The boat ride out was only about 10 minutes and the waters weren't as rough as on the lava boat so everything was good.  Within 10 minutes of anchoring and chumming the waters we had our first shark surface.  Gina and I were first into the cage with 4 other tourist and got to see the sharks close up.  IT WAS AWESOME!!!!  At some points there must have been about 6 or 7 circling the boat going after the fish heads.  The group that was in the cage after us even had one run right into the cage which scared a few of the people inside.  I have a few good pictures and videos but it was difficult because you were so close.  On our way back to Cape Town we stopped back in Hermanus to see the whales again.  They weren't as good as yesterday but we still saw a few.  Back in Cape Town we went for sushi at a recommended restaurant and filled our faces.  It was really good.  Abseiling Table Mountain tomorrow.

Glad to hear the sharks didn't get you! You are brave to see them even from inside a cage. Have a good day at Table top tomorrow
