Dive with giant Bull Sharks and live to tell the tale

Manta Ray Island Resort
Clarke’s about to push the envelope, getting in the water with an animal that he has nothing but respect for. But what unfolds is far more than he bargained for. He is surrounded by two dozen 200 to 300-plus kilogram Bull Sharks. Perhaps he should have done this at the end of the trip, as he’s off to Manta Ray Island to target Spanish Mackerel both on rod and reel as well as on spear, and everywhere he goes there are plenty more sharks! He get his target species easily on rod and reel, but the spearfishing is proving far more of a challenge. Then on the final day after a hard days’ spearing, he and fisherman Justin try their hand at popper fishing for GT’s. The results will blow your mind.
