Diving & Dancing with Nurse Sharks in Belize

 

These pictures where made during scuba diving with nurse sharks in San Pedro, La Isla Bonita in Belize. We could even play and dance with these beautiful nurse sharks in the marine park. Most of the sharks expect to get fed and they like getting very close in order to check out food possibilities.

They gracefully swim and you never can predict their next movement, looks like they are dancing in the water….check out this shark video!

Thanks for a great 2 tank dive done with Ambergris Divers, San Pedro, Belize.

Because fishing is strictly forbidden in the marine park the sharks have no fear of divers. When they are comfortable they like to come close and check out who is visiting them. However caution is always recommended when you swim with this great animals.
