During a drift dive in the big blue at Elphinstone/Red Sea, a Oceanic whitetip attack and destroyed my SMB. We had a unforgettible dive in the blue with this curious and fantastic creature who wanted to taste my equipment :) The sharks rule.

Hi,

Like the one where it looks like the shark is trying a scarf ;-))
