Schimpf explains in the MaxAnimal video that you need this boat if you want to keep up with the sardine run. This is an event in the natural world that occurs around the coast of South Africa and attracts all kinds of wildlife. The run takes place from February up until May with sardines congregating in the area between Port Elizabeth and Mossel Bay.
On this trip, Schimpf had taken the group out towards an island in Mossel Bay that is home to roughly 5,000 Cape fur seals. The bay is also a haven for many species of shark, making it a popular place for cage diving with the monster fish.
Once the tour had reached the island, they circled it once and stopped to take pictures. It was then that they spotted something fishy lurking in the water next to the boat. Schimpf told MaxAnimal it had been a female shark, measuring an impressive 15 feet long.
