bullshark

 

I love to SCUBA dive and ever since I can remember I have loved sharks. And the more I dive and see what is happening to our oceans, the more I love the sharks!

The picture was taken by CJ my friend at Cabo Pulmo BCS Mexico, a National Park that Jacque Cousteau once called “The Aquarium of the World”!
I have wanted to dive sharks for a long time but I have to tell you that when I saw them circling the boat before entering the water my heart rate jumped.
Now I am not a novice diver, I have been diving for years and years with a few certifications under my belt. My point I guess is: that as I was descending to 40Ft I forgot all the instructions that the boat captain gave us ……like get to the bottom quickly – don’t float around swimming above them. As I realized that everyone else was at the bottom and I was still “floating” around on my descent I quickly raced to the bottom!

Once I was settled at the bottom I looked to my left and a large bull shark was coming right for me! In the last second it turned away to a different direction.

Would I do it again? In a heartbeat – I love these creatures and I think they are often misunderstood and mainstream media does them no justice and creates fear. They make them into monsters with headlines like ” Shark seen in the FL keys” well duh that is where they live, in the ocean.

Be kind to our oceans folks!

Diving with the Bull sharks in Cabo Pulmo, Mx

So much garbage!

My dive shop Nautilus Dive Tech went out on a dive in our local area of Cabo San Lucas, Mx to pick up garbage. So much trash in the sea!
Now on most of my dives, I come up with a pocket full of garbage from tons of fishing line and lures to bottles and cans.

Considering that this local dive spot is a no fish zone, we came up with so much fishing line. I have seen the damage first hand on how hazardous this can be for marine life. A fishing line was strangling a beautiful Moray Eel. Another eel had a hook in their mouth. They will surely die because they can’t eat!

The strangest thing I have found in the ocean is a dirty diaper! WTH!! Or women products??

Please pick up your garbage. Take the bottles and cans, plastic waste, and cigarette butts back home with you.

I don’t understand humans – I would rather hang out with the fish!
