I recently went to Belize. I had a couple of things happen to me but I wore my shirt under all scuba gear bc I was in a 3 mill suit and cold. So cold that i was blue. I also wore my shirts everywhere for comfort-even in the heat. I have bought 4 now.

Ok so my story is that I got sick with the surge. I dove to deep-90ft- and on my ascent I pueked several times. As I expunged the digested breakfast I noticed that i was attracting alot of fish. Soon I was surrounded by beautiful fish! I forgot about my see sickness and just sat and watched the fish. The dive master went a step further and flipped a shark on its back for me to pet! It was beautiful! Cant upload photos but they are on my Facebook page!

I was diving a shallow reef one time and macro photographing coral and fan worms, so paying very close attention to what I was doing. I felt a presence  and turned to see a barracuda looking over my shoulder, just curiously watching what I was doing. I finally pushed the purge button on my regulator to shoo him away. a little unnerving at the time, but kinda cool.

Oh boy, I have many. Was a diver for Cousteau. One was diving at dawn with a mother and baby whale.

I was going through a coral tunnel and came face to face with a large nurse shark. We literally just stared at each other for a few seconds and the shark did a U turn a left Never any sign of aggression.
