Something different to bikes...., SHARKS!!!

Even though we enjoy the traveling on the bikes it was nice to have a day off, get out of the saddle, clean up, recharge and enjoy something a little different...

Hydro and I went cage diving with the Great White Sharks, White Pointers or Carcharodon Carcharias at the Neptune Islands out from Port Lincoln in South Australia. What a day!

They were circling the vessel within minutes of anchoring... We had at least seven different Geat Whites 5 to 6 metres in length hanging about all day long. They were lured in by the burley trail and cast out chunks of fresh tuna caught on the way to the islands.

To have such massive alpha predators of the ocean gliding by, centimetres away, was truly amazing...

That's what I call a set!
