Today was our long planned day to scuba dive with great white sharks…and it didn’t go as planned.

We woke up this morning early and were out the door by 6 AM, headed to meet our boat. After making it to the shipyard, we managed to find our boat fast and climb on board. Unfortunately, it ended up raining all day and it was cold. Not the ideal weather for scuba diving but we thought it would be well worth it to see great white sharks.

After boarding the boat we were told it would be about an hour trip to Stewart Island, where the great whites usually hang out. However, we were warned that the sharks had been sporadic so we may have to wait around a bit…we ended up doing just that. We waited around all day, with no sharks in sight.

After a long, roughly ten hour day we headed home, not managing to make it into the water at all. Now it’s time to sleep off our disappointment.

Happy Travels,
