Halfway through my last stop I felt the hair stand up on the back of my neck and I started to get seriously edgy, although I could not see anything (or maybe because of it). After what felt like an eternity I surfaced and climbed into the boat and the others both said they had felt the same thing. Rick Harding and several other fisheries scientists and researchers were also in the area in a research vessel and after we were finished they put their ROV into the water to film and map the egg beds we had been diving on.
Both on the way down and up the cameras on the ROV filmed a curious great white that was checking out the intruder to its territory. In hindsight I'm almost certain that we were all visited by this shark during our various deco stops, and although none of us saw it, we certainly "felt" its presence nearby! Never a dull moment in the ocean..."
Things will kick off at 8am with some gentle stretching & warm-up's by physio Marelize Dalton, and then the qualified surf instructors will take you out for a surf lesson, and plenty of laughs.
