While scuba diving off Cairns Australia with Deep Sea Divers Den aboard their vessel Ocean Quest, the cameraman had the opportunity to do his very first night dive in tropical waters. Earlier before the dive, the crew had been demonstrating the species of fish that are around at night, by throwing specific fish food into the waters ,not human food.
This attracted many species, one being SHARKS. The purpose was to show the divers what is around, and the crew eased the divers by ,that "once you enter the water, they will disappear".
Well ,did the divers believe this? the truth was to be proven as to how sharks actually do react with divers entering "their" habitat.
This is a quote directly from one of the local dive companies on the Great Barrier Reef.

"This is the most common shark spotted by our guests, whether they are snorkeling or scuba diving. The white tip reef shark is a relatively small shark. The average size only measuring about 1.8 metres or 6 feet long. This is one of the best parts of our jobs, seeing people who less then 30 minutes ago were scared about sharing the water with a shark. Now they are seeing them up close and experiencing sharks in their natural habit. Immediately realizing that all the television and movie myths are just that myths. One of our guests last year went from being a nervous snorkeller to scuba diving, and her reason I want to ‘dive with the sharks’.
That nervous diver, was how the cameraman said he was, and now enjoys, and always hopes, in spotting a shark on any warm water dive.
