      Hi marena:

      The photo of Emma Tiger Shark and her "fin candy" (me) was taken by Jim Abernethy, on the western edge of the Little Bahama Bank. Jim runs shark diving trips pretty much year round to the Bahamas. He also does local day trips in the Palm Beach area.

      Are you into shark diving?

    Dive History:
    I started snorkeling in the 1950's, began SCUBA in the 1960's and, first SCUBA certified in the early 1970's. In the mid 1970's I began diving with the legendary Norine Rouse off of Palm Beach, Florida. Norine was a huge positive influence on my life and on my diving.

    My main focus in diving is shark and ray observation. The quest for sharks has taken me to: the Azores, Galapagos, Malpelo, Cocos, Rangiroa, Port Saint John, Dyer Island, Kenya, Pemba Island, Zanzibar Island, Yap, Philippines, Mozambique, Fiji, Great Barrier Reef, Bahamas, North Carolina, Arquipelago de Fernando de Noronha, Isla de San Andres, Isla de Providencia, Costa Rica, Hawai'ian Islands, Cuba, Haiti, Silver Bank, Cayman Islands, the Turks and Caicos Islands, Isla de Cozumel, Golfo de Califiornia, British Virgin Islands, Rhode Island, Bermuda, Scotland, Saint Helena Island, and Dominica Island.
