Swept in-shore from the deep by up-welling currents, this Root-mouthed jellyfish is on its last few breaths. Its a long and treacherous path it was swept along as its battered body is testament too.

"Great White"
On the 22.08.2015 my life changed forever and I was fortunate enough to dive with 3 of the oceans top apex predators, GW, Tigers and Zambezi's without any cages or restrictions! Here is one of the images.

Play Cape Fur Seal. Although still a youngster, I was surprised at how much wear and tears its teeth already shown at such a young age.

A black tip slowly cruises past with the late afternoon sun glistening on her back, just something so surreal about this image and actually witnessing the moment in the water.

In 2013, it was documented for the first time that a bait ball was kept trapped by the shear number of sharks present. Although a few dolphins were spotted early on, they soon left and the ball was literally wrapped by sharks.

There are bait balls and then there are Shark Balls, just another one of those things which makes the Sardine Run one of The natural spectacles on the planet today.

One of the fastest moving predators at the Sardine Run are the Cape Gannets. Watching their aerial assault from a boat is amazing. Witnessing it from within the water is simply breathtaking!
