Shark park delivers four species of shark in a day:

The activity at Shark Park has been good for this time of year and helped no doubt by a better weather pattern so far this year compared to last year. The water temperature dropped to a chilly 15 celsius and this scared the living daylights out of the tigers. So far only one little girl has made it back and she is very shy. The good news however is that the Blacktip numbers are still at maximum, the duskies have arrived and although the raggie numbers are no where near the hundred or so of last year we are regularly seeing more than twenty.
One of the highlights of the last few weeks has been being involved in the East Coast Radio ( www.ecr.co.za ) competition "Durban's No.1 Dare". Each contestant has to face their fear and conquer it. This competition is a celebration of the woman in our community for Woman's Month. Kajal Parsuram had a fear of the open ocean and to top it all we added 30 blacktips to put her under even more pressure. Kajal did extremely well in 25kt winds and raging seas with the blacktip pack bumping her and brushing past her. You can vote for Kajal on www.ecr.co.za .
Special thanks to the team at East Coast Radio, Jeep Apparel (always) Sijmon de Waal and the rest of the Blue Wilderness team for making this such a fun day.
