Shark Drive By

December 22, 2016

The next day on our cruise saw us in Cozumel. Diving in Cozumel is always enjoyable and relaxing as you spend most of the time drifting along with the current. Not much effort is needed besides the occasional kick to keep you with the group.

Our first dive was pretty easy. I happened to catch our dive master pointing out a puffer fish to the group.



The real highlight of this dive was a drive by of what appeared to me to be a nurse shark.

I confess I had just a moment of hesitation when it turned directly towards me at the 18 second mark of the video. I've never personally experienced a shark to be aggressive so I assumed it was just turning towards me out of curiosity. I was right and was rewarded with a great close up. You can even make out the shark's pupil.
