JUNO BEACH, Fla. - Just north of the Juno pier, about 2.5 miles offshore, Cameron Nimmo and Mickey Smith were diving in about 80 feet of water with Emerald Charters. They were looking for sharks. They are shark enthusiasts!
" Shark diving is my love and passion." Nimmo said.
While diving they normally run into a lot of lemon sharks, hammerheads, and bull sharks. And have the video to prove it too! Check out their YouTube channel: SharkAddicts)
But this weekend, Nimmo saw something he had never seen before in our waters, a tiger shark.
" They are fairly rare around here, but encounters happen [they are] rarely filmed that close," said Nimmo.
Nimmo and Smith weren't scared though, they actually go out and hand feed the sharks!
" I get surrounded by 7 bulls sharks and 15 to 20 lemons at a time, I don't have a fear in my bones towards sharks."
He was very excited to add a tiger shark to the list of underworld creatures he has run into.
"The tiger was my first encounter and it was a she, and she gave me a couple passes by. I loved every second! just before I was filming a greater hammerhead on the surface during our interval."
