Usually sandbar sharks are extremely elusive as they are shy, however, on this particular dive, the sandbars were coming in HOT!  This female came right up on my dome along with her entourage.

This large female tiger shark was coming right up to my dome port in this image and I was fortunate enough to capture her with a beautiful sun ball in the background.

Blue Sharks around the UK coast are the most beautiful creatures but sadly also targeted by fishermen for catch and release which can be harmful to the sharks!

A great dive with sharks (Carcharhinus perezi).
They were many, that it was impossible to count them.

This Tiger Shark followed a scent line in the sand right to our bait basket. She wants the plastic bottle of water first before figuring out how to get in the basket. The video is awesome! Tiger Beach - Bahamas
