Shark Route teams have a great day!

The team at the Chokka Squid Spawning Spectacle had a phenomenal day with 14 baitballs. The activity was frenetic and the team were nearly upended by a Brydes Whale. The whale was lunge feeding through a baitball and crashed into the boat from underwater. This had the effect of lifting the boat about a metre out of the water before it came crashing down. The whale seemed non plussed by the experience and continued feeding. The day was a chase about town with a pod of 2 000 common dolphin. We spent nearly 6 hours with the pod and Peter Lamberti got some great footage.
