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.

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!

"My BEST side!!" This gorgeous female sand tiger shark came within a few feet of me then instantly veered off to her right; I think she was making sure I captured her "best" side!

"Out of the pack" - I really had this image or something very similar to it in my mind during this particular dive with the sand tiger sharks, when I turned my head to see it in actuality!! Lucky me!!

This is a lovely female sand tiger shark inside the biggest bait ball I've ever seen!! The ball was so thick that it was like night inside!! I came face to face with one of these beauties, so was lucky enough to capture this image.

Jupiter and West Palm Beach offer plenty of great diving .... The fresh flow of the Gulf Stream is home to Silkie, Dusky and Sandbar sharks in July.
