Description

One of our more popular kelp forest sites is at Pyramid Rock, where the Cow sharks aggregate in the shallow channel between Pyramid Rock and the shore. If the sharks are present, there can be up to 30 sharks in the aggregation. Their curious and inquisitive nature means there is no baiting involved and we rely solely on a specific area where these animals are known to aggregate. Aside from the main attraction, the kelp forest is a beautiful environment to explore. There is an abundance of life in the kelp forest.

If the Cowsharks are not evident, then look out for the Spotted Gully sharks, which attain 1.7 metres in length. This is a timid shark more easily approached by freedivers than SCUBA divers. Then there are several species of catshark: the Pyjama catshark, Puffadder Shyshark, Leopard shyshark and Dark shyshark. These smaller sharks are between 50cm and 1.2 metres in length. The huge Short-tailed rays can occasionally be spotted. These rays grow up to 2 metres across the disk.

RUN AWAY
We booked for a trip that we never did and they charged 100% of our credit card for no reason.
Distrust Karen who is the most deviant person of the group : she has never proposed anyhing else and it is impossible to discuss with her .
she only charges yoor credit card and that's all ... To avoid absolutely that company
