Unwanted visitor

Unwanted visitor

April 2011 - near the second red marker off Monkey Mia.  We were in a 4.2 metre tinnie and had a visit from this tiger shark that was about 4 metres long (centre right of photo).  It circle us twice before I decided it was time to move on!

Its even scarier when you have you hands in the water cleaning the bait board and don't even realise its there until your deckie says, "fuck look at that!"

Even worse when you jump in for a quick dip then get out and 30 seconds later a tiger rocks up about 4.5 in length!!!!

A few years back

A few years back I was talking to one of the research guys in the Monkey Bar at the resort.  They catch them and tag them.  They estimate there are about 5000 tiger sharks in the two gulfs!
