Jason Dmitri was culling lion fish, little creatures destructive to the coral reef, when he was attacked by a Caribbean reef shark. He was about 21 metres underwater (70 feet) and he managed to fend off the shark using his spear. The shark isn’t big by shark standards, but still it must have been a frightening experience.
I love this place and will continue diving here for the rest of my life. In no way did this encounter discourage me from getting back into the water.
