Shark feeding at it's best with silvertips, blacktips, whitetips, dusky nursesharks, sicklefin lemonsharks, bulls and tigers!

Now, I don’t agree with shark feeds, believing that this sort of behaviour can lead to the conditioning of sharks whereby they link the sight and sounds of divers and the dive boat to an imminent free meal, which could, and may have already, lead to accidents, but I figured I couldn’t comment on such a subject until I had seen one at first hand. Although the sharks weren’t there immediately, it didn’t take long, which makes me suspect that this has already taken place, they have been feeding here for 10 years after all. There have been no injuries whilst the 2 operators have been conducting these feeds, but I believe it’s only a matter of time. The feeders may think they are in control, but who can control ten 3m bull sharks in a feeding frenzy. Still, it was one hell of a rush!
