Pelagic Humans !
We started our Sunday Safari with a boat full of international customers, locals and even some shark specialists from Pelagios Kakunja. On the way to our shark spot we spotted a turtle on the surface and Mobula Japanicas leaping around us – which lasted the entire day. We had our first Silky after around 15 minutes of chumming and were then able to spend the better part of 2 hours in the water with up to 3 different individuals at any given time.
As usual the Silkys were not shy at all and we regularly got great photo opportunities and eye to eye encounters.
We decided to leave the water and start heading back towards CSL to look for schools of Mobula rays or anything else we might encounter. While we did find a mating aggregation of probably many thousands of rays we could not enter the water as we were inside the bay with a lot of boat traffic.
See you soon silky friends!!!
