Belize Dive: 2
Site: Tackle Box
Avg/Max Depth: 50/87
Buddies: Nick, Curtis, Kristen
The second dive of the day started off with a bang. Rudy speared a lionfish right off the bat, which attracted a pile of nurse sharks. They went into a feeding frenzy, swimming frantically and bumping into us. They were moving so fast I couldn’t get a good shot, so I started up a video. If you hear me giggling, it’s because one rammed right into my butt.
Here’s Curtis’s video of the sharks eating. You can see me getting assaulted around 0:20.
The sharks were with us for the remainder of the dive, and I took about one hundred millionty pictures of them. Was there anything else of interest to look at? Who cares! Give me a nurse shark and I’ll be a happy diver.
Oh, wait. There was this spiney thing that I got close enough to to use the flash, so you can see the colors really well. Makes me want to invest in a super big light so my pictures turn out awesome.
I spent too much time hanging out deep with the sharks, so I had to hang above the group for a while near the end of the dive. Also, no lionfish for Nick.
