Spierre Sponsored diver Brinkley Davies and Ty Swan from the West Coast of Australia made a surf/dive trip to South Africa and visited Jeffreys bay for the good surf and made a trip to us in St francis bay while they were here before heading to Hoedspruit for some wildlife and then on to Mozambique for more diving!
The weather prediction for the day wasn't looking good all morning with the wind picking up much stronger by midday so we decided to go for a hike along the coast and show Brinkley and Ty some of the scenery here and try spot the local sea otters, we instead came across two large lazy seals lying on the rocks nearby sunning themselves, not worried with us at all.
Around 12 we saw that the wind hadn't appeared at all and we decided to take the boat out, for a dive after a much needed coffee shop stop. Once out of the port we saw the conditions were beautiful and the viz was crystal clear at places. Pierre, Grant and Ty decided to go spearing and found one or two nice species fish.
Just around the point we were greeted with a sighting of a humpback whale and her calf resting nearby and Brinkley managed to get a nice pic of it as it swam down.
Closer to Seal Point we spotted another whale and Brinkley and Ty jumped in hoping to get a closer look. The water was beautifully clear , the whale had unfortunately moved off to deeper water but the underwater life was just as fascinating with the clear viz which we don't get here everyday. Brinkley was luckily travelling with her Spierre fins with her custom orca design on them which looked amazing in the water, the colors really came alive. Her fins were kept safe while travelling in her new Spierre padded fin bag.
Below are a couple more pics of the days dive.

At Spierre each set of our Fin Blades is carefully and thoughtfully handcrafted to produce a fin blade that will meet the unique specifications of the individual diver. With over 30 years of experience in freediving and spearfishing and taking feedback that we receive continuously from top divers, we take this experience, insight and passion and apply it to design and produce the best possible blade.
