Scuba Diving with a Nurse Shark in Belize

In March 2016, I attended Beneath The Sea, which is America’s largest consumer scuba diving and dive travel show. The show is held annually in New Jersey at the Meadowlands Expo Center. The Expo center in New Jersey is only 10 minutes from New York City by public transportation.

One of the travel vendor’s Diviac (which was recently purchased by PADI) raffled off a free trip to Ambergris Caye, Belize and I was very luck to win it. Lodging was provide by Costa Blue Dive & Beach Resort. I dived with the on premise dive shop called Tuff E Nuff.

During each dive, we were able to observe the reef’s resident Nurse Shark. At first, we didn’t know if the shark was being aggressive or was just being friendly. Our dive guide told us no to worry about him. We knew it was the same shark because of the distinctive spot between its eyes. As you’ll see we were able to get very close to the shark.

Let me know if you think this was an aggressive or friendly Nurse Shark?
