    IMG_0887.JPG Sure, the boat is real, but the slide and the waiting sharks?
    Have my doubts, but open minded..

    Yeah, I think it could easily be real. When I worked on a megayacht many years ago, sometimes they'd put me in galley assistant. Well, they liked to anchor with a bow and stern anchor and get the stern/aft deck looking at the beach. So the current was usually not bow to stern. I had a good old time, running all of the left over lunch food through the garbage disposal and watching all of the fish and sharks off of the side of the boat through the large galley windows.......that is until the engineer came out to the galley one day and reamed me out and told me to know it off because it kept clogging the sump pump up for the grey water tank for the galley.....hehehehe.....

    No it's fake. See the 'photocrashapps' watermark in the bottom right corner? That's an app that allows you to add crazy stuff to pictures.

    This is the original:

    Catch the boats name and find where she operates. The sharks are easy, near any sh*t town full of attorneys.

    This photo was taken in the Exhuma's Bahamas and it is not un common for the nurse sharks to be circling the yachts as crew feed them for the charter guest entertainment. The sharks are harmless.

    Don't think I ever dove with Nurse sharks that small. The larger Nurse sharks were always calm along reef edges. Mostly napping.
    In a previous life (wife #1), I had a picture of myself laying next to a 6' Nurse under a reef ledge.

    BTW; Always, ALWAYS, give Bull sharks a wide scope.
    I luv em all but could never trust a Bull.

    That was pretty painful to watch. That ruin his day for sure. A lady on the beach in Boca Raton was "messing with a Nurse shark" and the shark turned around and bit her on her arm. It seems like Nurse shark attacks are becoming more common.

    That video is like a chapter of a good book in real life, the injured guy in pain and cooperating, the other guys being guys, helping, taking a video and laughing like guys do in rare and possibly funny (not for the person with a shark bitting his abdomen) situations, "you are the only person I know that has been bitten by a shark", the lady being a lady, on one side (we all know that women side) asking for the shark to be knifed in the eyes repeatedly and on the other worried about her beach towel and, finally, the shark being a shark, stroked to death and still fighting and biting the victim on the video, a classic!

    Nurse sharks are indeed ones to be wary of when spearing lobsters especially in the Bahamas. I know of two locals on Acklins who have been torn up pretty good by them.

    All bets are off when hunting around them or any predator in the seas.
    I remember a pet Moray Eel that everybody loved. Petting was common.
    One day the dive master reached into a hole to grab a bug, Ole Greener sensed something, peeked and ripped the bug from the divers hand.
    Of course, his teeth went thru the divers gloves and raked badly his hand. SFB..
    Great day ended early. Meat wagon waiting at the dock when we sped in.

    BTW, shooting bugs in the Bahamas is against the law??,, is it?
    In the old days, we just tickle & grabbed them.
