Sharks... - This is always a good dive for seeing sharks. I can't remember ever doing a dive here and not seeing some grey nurse. Even the days when the fishermen used to dynamite them away in the late 80's, they always seemed to return here soon afterwards. Take twins because bottom time can be short.
