I was digging through some footage today and found this old clip of a tiger shark with Alex Mustard and Laz Ruda. Fun!



I haven't been on a proper shark dive in way too long.

Plenty of sharks at Cocos and several tigers too (no silvetips anymore - the tigers have taken there place). Alas, although I had several very close but momentary encounters while there in January, they were not like this:

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?
