“Despite the sea being rough this week, WSDC has still managed to keep us volunteers busy. Fishing for sharks off the boat is always fun for me, although we did hook and release a huge, beautiful octopus fishing from the rocky shores of Gansbaai.

The definite highlight of my week though, was the Fatbike Tour through the natural sand dunes of De Kelders. We spent an entire afternoon biking, slaloming and sliding down steep sand dunes with the incredible South African ocean horizon in front of us. We even got to take a while to admire the whales breaching just offshore from our trial. That was an experience I’m sure I’ll never forget!” – Carina Remmel
