Overview

Our pelagic trip is a long day out at sea where we travel up to 25 Nautical Miles off Cape Point. The Blue sharks are more commonly seen sharks on these trips, they are very calm and inquisitive and will approach divers and snorkelers in most cases. They normally feed on squid and a variety of fish. Blue sharks have very big eyes to help them hunt in deep waters and can grow up to 3.5m, although it is rare to see a mature animal of this size. Most are between one and two metres in length. They are incredibly graceful, with long pectoral fins. The Blue shark is actually the most abundant shark on the planet.

Shortfin Mako sharks are some of the fastest swimming animals in our waters, this helps them prey on tuna, gamefish and other shark species. Shortfin Mako sharks can grow over four metres and weigh roughly 700 kg. They are instantly recognisable from Blue sharks with a distinct swimming manner full of intent and a mouth bristling with teeth. An incredible shark to see eye to eye!

Scuba divers, free divers and snorkelers are all welcome to join on this experience.

We encounter several other special creatures on our trips out to “the deep” these are by no way guaranteed but always a bonus to see.

Some of these include:

Pelagic Fish: Yellowfin Tuna, Longfin Tuna, Yellowtail, Dorado, Bonita, Sunfish

Birds: Subantarctic Skua, Swift Tern, Common Tern, Cape Gannet, Cape Cormorant, Bank Cormorant, White Breasted Cormorant, Shy Albatross, Atlantic Yellow-nosed Albatross, Southern Giant Petrel, White-chinned Petrel, Cory’s Shearwater, Sooty Shearwater

Whales and Dolphins: Sperm Whale, Pilot whales, Humpback whales, Southern Right Whales, Orcas and Common Dolphins
