Sunday the 19th of October 2003 looked very much like yesterday... beautiful weather, but a strong wind was blowing from the SE... and very slow (see below) to begin with - no Sharks the first couple of hours. But then two very active (and a bit sronned too) sharks visited Lamnidae, and they entertained us for quite a few more hours. We observed four sharks today.
This White Shark was just very curious... absolutely no interest in the bait! She just always came up to the engines, extended her head out of the water to look at us, and then she really just mouthed the engine covers... It was very fortunate that we had our protective engine covers as this prevented the Shark from hurting herself...
And here are some photographs taken by Alan Duncan over the past few days...
