We've come a long Way indeed!


Very cool find by Patric!
This is how Sharks were being viewed in the old times - and I must confess, my personal image of Tiger Sharks has only changed rather recently, this principally owing to my personal acquaintance with Scarface and Jimmy's iconic dive at Tiger Beach, and his brilliant advocacy for those Sharks. And let's not forget his equally brilliant caveats!

Anyway - watch and be amazed!

I have to say I agree with what J.A has to say about Tiger Beach - first time I have read it.

Fact is the hand feeding has to stop...RIGHT NOW.

These animals, thanks to J.A mostly, have been well seasoned to accept bait in crates and tubes.

A manageable situation with wild animals.

Those who are hand feeding these magnificent critters are in fact creating very big problem...confused animals.

One of the basic tenets of shark diving (or so I thought) was "do the same thing each time, every time."

I have been on site after a hand feed and can say without a doubt these were changed animals, bumping the divers very hard, seeking a hand out.

It is a "left over mess" that is disrespectful to the sharks first and foremost, and it is a situation that radically alters the local scene.

All for a few images?
