Hi All!
been a while since I posted!
I remember a member here carved some amazing Fiji Shark hooks out of old ivory..
Wondering if that person is still around, and if they have any for sale??

I just completed an advanced shark dive, and I think I finally earned one of these for myself

Please reply here ir email me:

Thank You!

YES! Thats the one!!!

My latest shark dive really was over the top..
Shark diving is a new hobby, which is cool, and scary because we sometimes do "firsts"
and with animal interaction.. Firsts can be scary.. SO

We just finished the first ever mako Shark dive, without the use of cages or chainmail suits.. Just standard wetsuits and snorkel / fins..

It was intense!!! You can read about the trip at the
www.sharkdivermag.com blog section.. I have a few pics i'll try and post also!!!



Here is a mola mola... Its doesnt look big in the pic, but top to bottom it was probably 7 feet, and 1000 lbs.. These are really rare, so it was a special treat on our last day!
