Floppy fins and bright colours (yellow is good). These fins of mine always go down well:


Now that you speak about bright and yellow ...and going behind yellow gloves ..... my buddy was with his brand new shinny twin tanks ... that's a new prespective

I had always thought seals bite yellow fins thinking they're fish ... it seems they come to swimmers for our gleaming skin ... good to know it

Wear ND Jet Fins, they love play and bite them

In Dublin bay, seal are very shy; don't like fast movements and noise fast boats

In Dun Laoghaire swimmers, seals and scuba divers share the sea

They normally avoid scuba divers but they come if you're swimming or doing skinny diving

I've learnt about seals behaviour more from swimmers than scuba divers so it might be good idea ask to regular swimmers in the area

If an area shared with swimmers, definitely, feeding seals isn't a great idea and if there's children around is .... incredible irresponsable!

Anyway, from my experience they might go to you if you're doing snorkel or free diving.

If you meet one during a dive ... slow down, pretend that you're ignoring it ... small seals like the Jet fins (I think because they looks like mum or dad fins) so, in your case, it might be a good idea that your buddy wears it and you don't ... even though the seal is behind the fins of your buddy it keeps an eye on you ... like small children when they know there're doing something wrong!! so keep the game of pretending that you're ignoring it

I know it's sound complicate. It isn't and is a good fun

Great report! I'm really enjoy it!!

But I felt a bit sorry for the bird. Youíre very lucky that the bird were good hunter and caught your tank and no where it ends :) Maybe you've got the honor of a rule with your name.

Anyway, I'm glad you're well and delight us with this post. Itís awesome the seeking food and fish robbery shoots.
