Visibility was incredible. At a depth of 10M the vis was about 35M. My bag was half full and I was working outside the cage and changing position – that’s when I saw it!
This Great White was BIG, 5M at least and coming straight in. The cage was too far away, but almost between me and the shark. It came directly towards me, but as it got to approximately 5M from the cage it shook and almost turned inside out – that’s when I realised it had hit the “Shark POD field” that I had set up on the cage.
My relief diver had previously had a similar experience and had told me that “Shark PODs* work”. Now I believe him.
*Shark POD is an old obsolete product and no longer in production
