    Surf 2 plus feet
    Vis - 15 - 20'
    Temp - 85
    wind - SSE at 5 - 10 MPH

    About one mile off shore in 30 feet of water.
    30 minute dive got chased out of the water by sharks, 5 of them. Came to the surface to grab my camera and spotted two Dorsal fins. Jump up on the Yak after I got out of my BC in 5 seconds flat.
    That was a huge rush! I spotted five sharks and 2 dolphins all around the kayak. There was several areas with bait fish pieces floating on the surface. I chicken out. I thought shark week was in August. Dive safe!

    I would have walked on water ..... I have heard dolphins while I was out and often wondered about running into a shark or 2 .....
