Just me and 21 other divers ****ting around watching a bunch, a whole bunch, of sharks have an appetizer before lunch. No special suites, or cages.

How do you ascend after this scene?
Sharks like to attack things at the surface, do you just wait for them to go away?
What if you have an out of air emergency?
Where do you do your safety stop?

Why bother even feed them for? Might as well watch them hunt and eat the natural way.

Most of the sharks left once the food was gone. Those who stayed around did not follow us up to the service even when we did our safety stop at 15 feet. As for needing to leave before the show was over, there were crewmembers that you would signal too and they would assist you to the surface. Keep in mind; the sharks were focused on the natural food (tuna) not on us. It was fantastic and I hope to have the opportunity to do it again.

Thank you for your comment. I am a very strong believer in take only pictures and disturb nothing. The food given to the sharks was there natural pry, tuna. The point of the dive was to demonstrate that not all sharks are to be feared. They are not looking at divers as pray and can be observed in a natural way. The can of tuna was to draw as many sharks as possible into a central point so great photos could be taken without danger to the sharks or diver.

I was on that site about a week later with Explorer Ventures. I didn't see the huge potato cod in your video that we had in our feed. When food would get shook loose from the bucket he would come out of nowhere to grab it..

Thanks for sharing..
