Dived with "scubaadicts" - very professional outfit. Difficult diving, strong currents and rough seas big ocean swells. RIB launch through 3m surf was adventure in itself. Main purpose of dive was tiger sharks and although we sometimes had 7 round us up to 5m long, didn't get any decent shots

~ Eskimos ~ As with just about anything, our judgement of it is defined by our perception of it. Once you have shed the perception the media would like you to have about shark, your eyes open & you can appreciate their beauty and expressions.
