Sharks Overhead

August 25, 2022

During the surface interval I couldn't resist playing around with the chain mail and the steel rods they use to protect us and keep the sharks at distance.

Chain mail

This shark dive was different from the first of the day. We descended to a shelf made of concrete slabs where we lied down on our stomachs. They dangled a wheelie bin so the sharks would be immediately in front of us. They only occasionally tipped a fish head out of the bin to avoid the full frenzy of feeding.

Shark Feed

It's pretty intense when the sharks start passing overhead!

So often the sharks were within arms reach. Of course, we were instructed to never reach out for any reason (like taking pictures). The sharks are expecting you to feed them so if you were to reach out, you better have some food or they might take something else!

What an absolutely amazing trip. Definitely bucket list level stuff. After six sharks dives I never once tired of seeing them. Each dive was truly captivating in one way or another.
