    Wow

    And that bump from the shark at :36 would have left a mark in my pants.

    I dived the sardine run a few years back and all I can say is that it was an experience of a lifetime

    Actually, I haven't ever seen a Bryde's whale like that before with all the other life chowing the sards.. Epic!

    Yeah - nicely played - I know Ranier fairly well and can say that there are SHED-Loads of sard shoals in both Algoa and St. Francis bays atm. Pity there are only Bryde's whales around now - soooo much more impressive diving with humpbacks, Sei's or blues.....

    VERY rarely - I've seen them feeding in isolated sard shoals, but yeah - they don't follow the run per say.
