Wow, they were close, I was there about a month ago and they were really shy I didn't really manage to get anything but a dot in the middle of the screen. They are a beautiful shark.

That was my previous experience as well. All the shots contained only a grey dot especially with fisheye lens. But this time I could make reasonable pics about white tip, longimanus, silky and even about fox sharks. Only hammerheads were too shy to make nice shots about them but at least we have seen them as well.
