The White Shark Trust Field Research Assistantship is proud to introduce you to our assistants:

Alex BROWN (Burnham, England), Trey SNOW (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA), Nicolas PADE (Nivaa, Denmark) and John NICHOLS (La Jolla, California, USA).

Wednesday the 20th of October 2004... Another day contrasting with the previous days... overcast and rainy... but fortunately the heavy rain and thunderstorm only started once we got back to shore. We were invited on board Barracuda (Shark Diving Unlimited), on which boat we are better protected against bad weather. We observed five different White Sharks.
Unfortunately for the algae bloom in the water, the underwater visibility was bad... and our assistants decided not to go into the cage. Definitely not as nice a day as yesterday, but we cannot always be lucky... It was nice to be with our friends Frank, Morne, Ivan and Nsunda on Barracuda. We took a drive through Shark Alley to look at the Cape Fur Seal colony...
The sounds you are hearing while looking at this page, do indeed seem to come from the photographs surrounding these lines, but they are in fact not... See for yourselves below!
As soon as we came back to the harbour, rain started pouring down as the thunderstorm was over our heads... We drove to Hermanus to watch the movie Collateral and have a drink. John and Nick also processed their films, and they got some really great photos during the past few weeks...
The following night, a storm hit our coastline and on Thursday the 21st of October, the ocean was too rough to go to sea...

In the afternoon, we went to De Kelders for a milkshake at Cafe on the Rocks, and then strolled down to the rocks to enjoy the Southern Right Whales along the coast...
