You have probably already seen some incredible videos of the whale sharks this year. It was an amazing extended season with large numbers of manta rays joining them in their feast of plankton here in the Caribbean.  I would describe it as snorkelling in a thick soup of sharks and manta rays! An unforgettable experience to be surrounded by such giant majestic animals! What’s more, as the whale sharks leave us the bull sharks are already being frequently sighted early before their season! This year would be a truly epic year for shark sightings! Great numbers of bull sharks migrate…

Greg’s hero was Mike Nelson, played by Lloyd Bridges, on the TV show “Sea Hunt.” Some…
