This was a real good dive. Marisa's first dive with us and Tammy's first ocean (real) dive. The weather was nice, the water was calm. We hopped in and once everyone got comfortable in the water, we kicked around and saw lots of stuff. We came back past the boat a couple of times to see if they had attracted anything interesting. As we got back to the boat for the last time (before getting out), we found two 7-8 ft nurse sharks swimming around. One of them swam right past John and came face to face with me. Pretty exciting! I took a few pictures but apparently, the battery I had didn't have much life left in it and died right before seeing the sharks! :-(
