In the Bahamas
- the OP's region of interest - if you stop by Highbourne Cay and dinghy
into the marina area about the time the sportfishermen return with their catches you will see an amazing sight and have an up close and personal experience with dozens of small and large sharks thrashing the water
just below where the fishermen are gutting and cleaning
their catch. Under your dinghy
the sharks will be turning and thrashing wildly trying to get some of the offal thrown in the water
. I would hesitate to take a pure inflatable
dinghy in to do this though.
- - Much further south in the Jumentos, we were walking on the shoal area just off the beach in a foot or two of water when we noticed two medium or large black tips cruise
by between us and the beach. That stops the heart for a millisecond as it was very unexpected to see them in such shallow water.
