Video Contest Entry

This video was taken during our first ocean diving trip, a Blackbeard cruise during Nov. 2007. (See also "sergeant major attack" which is from the same trip.) This video represents several firsts...first ocean trip, first underwater digital camera, first shark dive, first video taken with the aforementioned camera...

It also represents the controlled format of a Blackbeard cruise shark dive. There is a single bait ball attached to a line. This line is pulled down into the water, with the line running through an eye hook and off to a side position. No one in the water ever has any contact with the bait ball itself. Most of the action took place 20 feet in front and often above us...a distance that felt very safe, but still close enough to see the action. All participants were parked in a close semi-circle, kneeling on the bottom.
