Shark Diving Excitement

There are several shark diving boats operating out of Ensenada. My wife wrote about our recent experience with the worst of them here-

Re: Shark Diving Excitement

What is it about shark dive operators?

Shortly after I dove with this guy in Roatan, he attacks his competition in what seems like a Lloyd Bridges-Sea Hunt-James Bond kind of way: A shark feeding profiteer in Roatan has been charged with attempted murder.

Here's a video of my dive with the reefies:

Steve,
Never a dull moment when your "cruising" hope all is well with Tamiko and the Blue Cammo boat is calmed down

Yikes! Waiting on baited breath for Part 2.

Medical care in the US 40 years ago was more like the Mexican model of today, minus all the modern marvels. I still prefer a Rx doctor to be older than I am but that is much more rare these days.
