On Tuesday the 27th of April 2004, we were invited on board Barracuda, Shark Diving Unlimited's cage diving vessel. Beautiful day, but a large swell was remaining from the storm offshore that brought in huge swell over the last couple of days. We observed 11 different White Sharks today!

On Wednesday the 28th of April 2004, we welcomed back Tom Peschak on board Lamnidae after along absence. His book "Currents of Contrast" is now nearly finished and we look forward for this publication to be printed. More on this matter later. We observed 16 different White Sharks today. One of the worst days nevertheless as most Sharks did not show their dorsal fins for identification...
We also welcomed Peter Pickford and his wife Beverly on board. Photographer and journalist partners professionaly, they joined us to document an article they are writing for African Geographics about the Great White Sharks and the cage diving industry in South Africa. This article should be very interesting... more later on the matter.
