On average I push 5 sharks a day away from me as they came in for a feed on the bait I was holding. 3 years ago after the diver doing my job on the boat, a week before I was to arrive, was bitten by a bronze whaler I decided to try an Ocean Guardian. To my amazement I was unable to reach a shark to push it away with my spear gun because, at about 2 meters out, the sharks would turn away.
I never guide now without my Ocean Guardian and I have had occasion to use it on sharks in Vanuatu, Tonga, Australia, New Zealand and Niue.
It’s not as exciting diving with my Ocean Guardian, but it is a lot safer.
