    I took a risk and left the safety of the wreck (not advisable) and was rewarded by unexpectedly finding a school of 50+ Sand Tiger Sharks schooling in the open water. I was amazed and was the only diver to witness this in our group.

    Surprised you had to go that far to find them...especially on that wreck. I’ll guess it was a cattle boat with 18 divers in the water.

    I smiled to see it was the CaribSea - my first experience with schooling sharks was on that wreck too! T

    I was fortunate enough to run into about 8 sizeable sand tigers last week at the AR145 wreck. Nothing even close to that spectacular vid of yours, but it was enough to make our day! =)
