Swimming in a straight line, occasionally diving but predominately on the surface. Shark two wasn't initially visible. After about 20 minutes shark two appeared, approx 500 metres apart.Shark one was still active. During this time shark one disappeared leaving shark two visible swimming showing fin and tail. It did look as though it were feeding. We left whilst it was still active, potentially heading towards the Sound.
