WHALESHARK!! The final day of diving for the SUDS group proved to be the best of the weekend as the group was treated to not one, but two whale sharks on the Iron Reef, Seana’s Rig. Diver’s got up close and personal with the giant ocean marauders as they swam laps around the rig structure feeding. A group of divers from Brownsville Fire Department performing their checkout dives were also in the water for the once in a lifetime experience. As the Diver 1 was pulling away from the rig after dive 2 the boat was surrounded by a pod of dolphin that is estimated to have included 200 – 300 members. Truly an amazing experience for all those onboard.
