Very cool story. Did you happen to get any pictures? (Ever seen Alien vs Predator? )
I love stories like this Op. There is still SO much more to discover!!!!!
I got the whole thing on DVD. This jamaican guy had an underwater DVD camcorder. It was beautiful. It was shark mating season and there were literally
thousands upon thousands of sharks everywhere. They were so legion, they blotted out the sun from above us. They weren't interested in us because it
was mating season. They weren't there to feed, they were all too busy with each other. It was like a scene from The Fifth Element where all the
flying cars have different planes of traffic and they can fly up or down and join a higher or lower level of traffic. The sharks would interchange
lanes every now and then and you'd feel this 12 foot carribbean reef shark just rub up against your side as he swam straight up. They literally acted
like we weren't even there, and the guides knew it. There was no danger even though there were hundreds of different species there. Although most of
the aggressive species such as tiger sharks and great whites, were not in the area.
I dove about halfway down the Blue Hole. It was pitch black from above, but when you descended down into it your eyes adjusted and it became lit up
with a beautiful subtle blue light. Sky blue. I could see one lone sea turtle spiraling his way up the hole and just navigating through the sharks. It
was amazing. I came to about 200 feet down, way past the depth of the rest of the group, I love doing that because I'm an experienced diver. I could
barely see the bottom of the blue hole. The visibility was that good.
