Some bull sharks on our baited dive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ek8pyTfJVrE

Bull sharks and black tips have been known to be a bit bitey in the past to swimmers but sharks almost never attack divers.

It's so peaceful! :-)
Love the bull sharks' little fishy pets...

The remoras follow them about and grab food scraps. It is quite a peaceful scene really isn't it?

It is... and you are breathing INCREDIBLY slowly!

That's probably Caron's breathing but we were both keeping a low breathing rate. Breathing in a relaxed way helps conserve air.

Yes, it was an excellent holiday. Most of the shark feed videos are pretty similar so I picked the best ones. Hopefully I will have some more underwater footage later in the year.

Like cheap cheese, they're very hard to get out of the packaging.

I don't know what you'd taste like to a shark. But you're probably quite squidgy.
