Alek decided to leave
After about 50 minutes of swimming along the coast it reached a reef called Hartenbos (a popular swimming beach in the summer) and began patrolling back and forth in front of the beach. It also slowed down which made the tracking a bit easier.
One of the cool things about tracking at night is the bioluminescence in the water that shines neon green as it is disturbed. At about 11pm, Alek came to the surface to investigate us and looked like it belonged in the matrix, as all its body was shining green. More soon..
