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.

~ Shark Ball ~
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!

I was out snorkeling when I became aware that something was following me. At closer in inspection it turned out to be this beautiful Honey Comb eel. It was literally tracking my movements and using these coral heads as cover.
