Here are some pics from a shark snorkeling trip I did this last summer off the coast of southern California.

Those are GREAT. That must have been a great experience.

Pat I did a week of diving in Freeport back when I was a rookie. It was with a group from the dive shop that I did my course with & the theme was to do the shark encounter. I wasn't too sure how that would go but once it began it became obvious they were over fed & had no interest in eating us. By the 3rd day we were swimming side by side with several of them. A few years later while snorkeling in the Keys ( I think it was called Spanish Channel) I had a small reef shark circle around me for a good look. At first I thought it was a Barracuda but when I took a close look I decided it was time to stay closer to shore.

A skill is developed through constant practice with a passion to improve, not bought.

If you scuba, you need to make it to the wreck of "Caribsea" off of Morehead City/Atlantic Beach, NC. It swarms with Sand Tigers. They look nasty with gnarly teeth, but they are harmless. This is my favorite dive site anywhere.

My last dive on "Caribsea" I estimated 25-30 sharks.

Another wreck with Sand Tigers is the "Aeolus." Usually has about 5 to 8 sharks that circle an open room in the aft section. Great place to collect teeth. I like to go into the middle and they just circle around.
