Diving with sharks

Really, actually we found a 2.5 meter Wobbegong shark in Gordon's bay last weekend. The dive was a good one, with a couple guys from UNSW. We swam across the bay on accident, ending up on the breakwaters at the south head. We had no idea where we were so I made the "go up" sign and when we surfaced there was an 8 foot wave coming over us.

I swam down and crossed the bay underwater while they surface-swam back to the entrance. On the way there I was thinking about Steve Irwin and the stingrays that were popping out from under me as I swam. I chased one, and they're super fast once they realize you're after them.
